Huawei Technologies Co., the Chinese tech giant embroiled in the US-China trade war and blacklisted by the US as a national security threat, helped the North Korean government build and maintain the country’s commercial wireless network, according to internal documents obtained by The Washington Post, reported Reuters.
The Chinese telecommunications giant partnered with a state-owned Chinese firm, Panda International Information Technology Co. Ltd., on a number of projects in North Korea over at least eight years, the Post reported.
The US Department of Commerce confirmed it has been investigating Huawei since 2016 and is reviewing whether the company violated export control rules in relation to sanctions on North Korea. Such a move would raise questions of whether Huawei, which has used US technology in its components, violated American export controls to furnish North Korea with equipment, said Reuters.
