ISLAMABAD: The US Commerce Department has granted another 3-month extension to Huawei’s temporary general license which now extends through February 16, 2020. This means Huawei is free to continue business with American companies for components.
“Extending the Temporary General License won’t have a substantial impact on Huawei’s business either way. This decision does not change the fact that Huawei continues to be treated unfairly either. We have long held that the decision by the US Department of Commerce to add Huawei to the Entity List has caused more harm to the US than to Huawei. This has done significant economic harm to the American companies with which Huawei does business, and has already disrupted collaboration and undermined the mutual trust on which the global supply chain depends.” Huawei said in a statement. “We call on the US government to put an end to this unjust treatment and remove Huawei from the Entity List,” it was added.
