Recently, a new bill was submitted to the U.S. Congress, which, in the name of safeguarding U.S. national security, called for a ban to be enacted,Prohibit U.S. agencies at all levels from cooperating with service providers that are using Huawei or ZTE devices.
The bill was introduced by Mike Conawayay, a Texas Republican. Conawi has also led an investigation into Russian interference in the U.S. presidential election. The bill, which is based on past laws against Huawei and ZTE, includes a ban on 2013. The ban prohibits ZTE from selling its products to U.S. government agencies. Last year, American politicians also submitted a proposal to restrict the Pentagon from Chinese or Russian communications service providers. Buy any equipment.
These bans have now been further escalated by shutting down any Huawei and ZTE technology that could potentially engage with the U.S. government and prevent Huawei and ZTE from cooperating with companies or suppliers that have contracted with the U.S. government , Indirect contact with the U.S. government agencies.
Up to now, Huawei and ZTE have made any comment on this incident.
Last year, a document disclosed revealed that ZTE had sold its equipment to the Pentagon and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security through a U.S. government contractor.
The proposal was submitted to the U.S. Congress on January 9. In order for the House to vote on the bill, it first needs to be reviewed and approved by the U.S. Government Reform Commission, and if it passes those procedures smoothly, it will be submitted to the Senate later. If the Senate agrees, Will be forwarded to the US president's desk, and the bill will become law after it is signed by the final president.
Therefore, this is only the beginning of this lengthy review and approval process. However, if we first put aside the legislative cycle of this legislative proposal and do not consider it, the submission of the bill alone has already conveyed the message that Washington And raised awareness of ZTE and Huawei as two Chinese multinational technology companies.
Last year, when ZTE admitted that it had violated U.S. sanctions against Iran and shipped products from the United States to Iran, ZTE was lured by the U.S. government when it lied about the incident when it received a U.S. federal investigation. Billions of days price as fine.
In addition to ZTE, the U.S. Department of Commerce is currently investigating Huawei's business dealings in Syria, Cuba, Iran and Sudan. (Stop water)
