Washington halts licences for US companies to export to Huawei
The Biden administration has stopped providing US companies with licences to export to Huawei as it moves towards imposing a total ban on the sale of American technology to the Chinese telecom equipment giant.
Several people familiar with the discussions inside the administration said the commerce department had notified some companies that it would no longer grant licences to any group wanting to export American technology to Huawei.
The move marks the latest prong in Washington’s campaign to curb the Shenzhen-based tech company, which US security officials believehelps China engage in espionage. Huawei denies any involvement in spying.
