China “urges” US to stop suppression on Huawei

US levies new sanctions against Huawei semiconductors

Huawei has been in the news since a long time. It is the largest telecom supplier and the second largest phone manufacturer. China has asked the United States to stop the “unreasonable suppression of Huawei and Chinese enterprises” after US announced sanctions against Huawei’s semiconductor technology.

This is another escalation in the US- China war for being the technological superpower. Huawei has been in controversy due to spying allegations by the US. Last year, the Department of Commerce put Huawei on the entity list, which banned US companies from selling hardware and software to Huawei.

The Chinese government will firmly uphold Chinese firms’ legitimate and legal rights and interests,” the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement Saturday.
