The video application Tiktok says it has prepared a cooperation agreement in the United States with the software company Oracle and the retail chain Walmart.

According to Tiktok, Oracle is expected to operate in the future as a technology partner for the messaging application in the United States, while Walmart would be Tiktok's commercial partner.

The United States has considered the Chinese-owned application a security threat.

In August, President Donald Trump signed a decree requiring ByteDance, which owns Tiktok, to sell its U.S. operations to an American company.

Earlier on Saturday, Trump had time to incense the planned deal and said he would give it his blessing.
