US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, said in a statement that the US Commerce Department blacklisted 38 Huawei affiliates from 21 countries. Earlier this month, Pompeo hinted at additional sanctions against Chinese companies and mobile applications in his visit to Prague.
Commerce Department’s statement emphasized the blacklisted companies to have the risk of acting on Huawei’s interests, which Trump administration believes is contrary to US national security and foreign policy.
Pompeo further stated that the affected companies were warned about finding other suppliers. The action, Pompeo said, would take effect immediately. Pompeo also warned that they would blacklist other companies that “threaten” their national security and global stability. He urged US’s allies to join them.
China, meanwhile, slammed the decision against Huawei. Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian warned the US not to continue discrediting Chinese companies.
