Huawei and ZTE ban: US stops sale of Chinese tech as a result of ‘unacceptable’ national security risk


The US has outlawed the sale of Chinese-origin communications equipment made by Huawei and ZTE, prohibiting the usage of some China-made surveillance systems as a result of an “unacceptable risk” to national security, in a fresh set of restrictions imposed on Beijing on Friday.

The Federal Communications Commission confirmed the move and said that its five-member panel voted unanimously to adopt latest rules which is able to block the import or sale of certain technology products that threaten Washington’s critical infrastructure.

“The FCC is committed to protecting our national security by ensuring that untrustworthy communications equipment isn’t authorised to be used inside our borders, and we’re continuing that work here,” said FCC chair Jessica Rosenworcel in a prepared statement.
