US govt plans more restrictions on buying foreign telecom gear - report

Thursday 3 May 2018 | 10:37 CET | News
The US government is considering executive action to further restrict the sale of Chinese telecommunications equipment in the US, people briefed on the discussions told the New York Times and Wall Street Journal. The executive order, which could be released within days, is expected to raise the barrier for government agencies to buy products from foreign telecom equipment providers like Huawei and ZTE. Private government contractors may also be restricted from buying foreign telecom products, which the US believes may be vulnerable to Chinese espionage or disruption, the reports said.
