UNITED STATES (VOP TODAY NEWS) — The Chinese government has recently summoned officials from major technology companies to warn them of the consequences of halting sales of their technology in China, US media reported on Saturday.
Washington announced mid-May at the height of a trade dispute with Beijing, its intention to include the Chinese telecom giant Huawei on the list of suspicious companies that prohibit the sale of technology.
Threatened by Beijing’s use of US espionage techniques, the move, called “national security”, threatens to keep the Chinese group, which needs US-made components and programs, to its products.
The Chinese government this week summoned heads of several groups, including the United States, Dell, Microsoft and South Korean Samsung, to warn them that any curtailment of its activities in China could lead to reprisals, the New York Times reported.
Chinese authorities have told US companies that the US administration’s decision to ban technology sharing between US and Chinese companies “has disrupted the global supply network,” the newspaper said, stressing that “companies that implement this policy can face consequences.”
Facebook said on Friday it would ban Huawei from its popular social networking applications. The social networking giant said it took the step after the US president ordered that US technology be exported to Huawei.
