US Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Rob Strayer has ruled out the possibility of extending the Huawei license, which expires on November 19.
The US government has kept the Chinese company on its blacklist despite repeated promises to lift the ban, as the company is currently working through a temporary operating license.
The US government granted Huawei an initial 90-day extension after being blacklisted, but US companies' discontent with losing trade opportunities with China Telecom forced the US government to extend the operating license for another 90 days.
US lawmakers may not extend the license again when it expires on November 19, Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Rob Streer told a news conference.
Strainer added that there is a possibility of further sanctions against those who continue to support Huawei in America, and more specifically, additional punitive measures are likely to affect Huawei allies in the 5G platform development sector.
Huawei is still allied with some companies in the United States, and recently Qualcomm announced a new business deal with the Chinese giant, which represents a positive step in the tense situation of the company in the United States.
Due to the ban, Huawei is facing heavy losses in the smartphone market.The company recently launched its Matt 30 without the popular Android operating system, and the company is already working on alternatives to Google products when the ban is activated.With the new US announcement, it may have to speed up the process.
