USA formalizes ban on govt contracts to China's Huawei, others

US Congressman Accuses China of'Blackmailing India Over 5G Amid Washington's Pressure on Allies CC BY 2.0  Kārlis Dambrāns 	 Huawei

The ban was included in the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) passed a year ago, and restricted the use of federal money to purchase telecommunications equipment and services and video surveillance equipment from "covered" telecommunications companies, citing national security concerns.

According to a news agency report, the Chinese establishment has expressed their concern with Indian embassy officials in Beijing about the USA campaign against Huawei and they said they hoped India would take an independent judgment. According to a report published by Reuters, Chinese officials are threatening India with "reverse sanctions" if Huawei is blocked from participating in the 5G trials. Furthermore, China's foreign ministry said Beijing hoped India will make an independent decision on 5G bidders.

She told police that she pulled a pistol out of her purse and fatally shot Allen because she thought he was reaching for a gun. Her case also inspired the introduction of state legislation aimed at protecting minors who are victims of sex trafficking.

While the rule was expected, it comes as tensions between the US and China surge over trade. As of now, there isn't any information on the inclusion of Huawei in the trails after it had issues with the United States over trade and national security concerns.

Not many Indian firms depend on China as compared to firms from other countries. The country has not yet decided whether to invite Huawei to take part in the trials. It also brought up the allegations against Huawei of trying to "position themselves and their establishment back home to snoop and enable them to shut remotely, if required be". While the names of the firms have not been revealed, companies such as Sweden's Ericsson, Finland's Nokia and South Korea's Samsung Electronics are expected to participate.

A high-level group of officials, led by the Principal Scientific Adviser to the Indian government K Vijay Raghavan and including representatives from the departments of telecoms, information technology and the intelligence services, has been looking into whether to open the 5G trials to Huawei. Hua Chunying who is a spokeswoman from China said in a statement that "Huawei has carried out operations in India from a long time and has made a contribution to the development of Indian society". The administration has warned that Huawei's equipment could give the Chinese access to phone calls and other communications and it has tried to persuade allies not to use the company's equipment in their build-out of the next generation of wireless networks, known as 5G.
