The Trump administration has issued a license that will allow US companies to keep doing business with Huawei for the next three months, in a bid to contain the fallout from the export restrictions placed on the Chinese telecoms equipment maker, reported the Financial Times.
Last week, the Trump administration abruptly announced that it was placing Huawei on the Commerce department’s export blacklist—known as the entity list.
The license would enable operations to continue for existing Huawei mobile phone users and rural broadband networks in the US, said US Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross.
“The temporary general license grants operators time to make other arrangements and the [commerce] department space to determine the appropriate long term measures for Americans and foreign telecommunications providers that currently rely on Huawei equipment for critical services,” Ross said.
