The Chinese telecom company Huawei is likely to trade for another six months with a limited number of companies in the United States. According to sources from Politico , the temporary trade license of Huawei is renewed once again.
Huawei was blacklisted in the US in May of this year, and was thus banned from trading with US companies. Shortly thereafter, the company received a temporary license that allows certain transactions with US companies, such as maintaining existing networks. That license was again extended by three months in August and would expire soon.
The United States suspects Huawei of espionage practices for the Chinese government. The US government has provided no evidence for this, and Huawei denies spying for the government. The US and China are currently negotiating a new trade agreement.
The trade ban is among other things responsible for the lack of the official version of Android on the latest Huawei smartphones. The company may no longer purchase a new software license from Google.
