US politicians ask Biden to blacklist former Huawei subsidiary Honor
Chinese company Huawei was placed on a blacklist in 2019 by then President Donald Trump on the grounds that it posed a national security threat. This cut off Huawei’s access to American technology, including chip blueprints and Google’s software and apps.
It appears that Huawei made the right call as companies that had severed ties with Huawei and consequently its subsidiary Honor, have now resumed relations with the latter. This includes the likes of Qualcomm, Google, Microsoft, AMD, Intel, MediaTek, Samsung, and Sony.
Honor is being viewed as a pawn of the Chinese government by Republicans
Republican senators believe that Honor is also a threat to national security and have asked the Biden government to blacklist it.
Florida senator Marco Rubio wrote a letter on Thursday that labels Honor as an arm of the Chinese government that now enjoys unrestrained access to vital US tech.
Huawei maintains its stance that it doesn’t have any stake in Honor.
