Huawei asks US court to overturn ban

San Francisco: Chinese conglomerate Huawei has reached a court in the US, demanding it to overturn the Federal Communications Commissions (FCC) decision to designate the company as a national security threat.

In 2019, the FCC voted to prevent US companies from doing business with Huawei and ZTE on national security concerns.

The FCC finalized the ban in December 2020, supported by former President Donald Trump.

“The order on review potentially impacts the financial interests of the telecommunications industry as a whole,” Huawei said in its court filing, reports The Verge.

Trump’s Huawei ban was part of a bigger trade war with China, followed by attempts to ban mobile apps TikTok and WeChat.

President Joe Biden has not renewed the war on TikTok, but his administration has indicated that it will continue to crack down on Huawei.
