An addressee, there is not. But against whom this decision is directed, is clear: in the Middle of the trade conflict, US President, Donald Trump and his government has granted by decree comprehensive ways against foreign Telecom companies. Certain countries or companies are not mentioned. The measure is, however, likely aimed at the Chinese network equipment supplier Huawei. The group and several subsidiary companies were placed on a list, which you are obligated, prior to the purchase of American technology, a U.S. government authorization to obtain.
The United States warn your allies for months before that, to use Huawei technology in the construction of the new mobile wireless standards 5G. The Americans fear that Huawei could be forced, in accordance with Chinese legislation, to grant to the government in Beijing, insight into customer data. Also Sabotage such as the deliberate switching Off of Parts of the digital infrastructure does not exclude Washington. Huawei denies the accusations vehemently.
The Department of Commerce in Washington, now has 150 days to adopt appropriate regulations. Depending on the design it might be tight for the Chinese group. In the best case, Trumps the spell merely aims to reduce Huawei's access to key technologies. In the past, the company had purchased several small American companies, in addition, Huawei supports universities, research to the US. So it should be pretty safe in the past.
Sensitive, it might be for Huawei, if the decree is interpreted particularly strictly and American companies are likely to in the future don't do any more business with Huawei. Then the production would be in serious danger. Because of 5G base stations to equip, you need the so-called high-frequency chips made from silicon carbide. The world master the market in three Main companies: wolf speed, and Qorvo from the United States, as well as the Dutch group NXP, which is listed on the New York stock exchange, and also the decree has to throw.
What happens if you cut off at once by the American Chip-supply, had to know ZTE in the past year, the Chinese company, whose tapes were months of silence. It should come to that also in the case of Huawei, it could delay the need for grid expansion in a number of countries. Here, the temporal projection was the main argument for the use of Huawei technology.
The Chinese reaction followed on Thursday prompt, if a little more subtle than expected. The Aussenamt in Beijing confirmed that two months of fixed Canadians had been transferred to detention. The former Diplomat Michael Kovrig and the business man Michael Spavor, were arrested last December, shortly after Meng Wanzhou, the chief financial officer of Huawei, at the airport of Vancouver due to Bank fraud in connection with the Iran-sanctions had been – at the Request of the United States .
diplomats in Beijing, the allegations hold for the constructed
Since then, the Chinese have been strained-canadian relations extremely. Kovrig have worked "as a spy, the Chinese state secrets and secret information to be stolen," - quoted by the official Xinhua news Agency in March, the legal Committee of the Communist party. Spavor was his most important contact, and I provided him with secret information. Diplomat in Beijing to hold the charges for constructed.
Recently, the conflict seemed to calm down some masses From the British National Security Council leaked out that Huawei is not to be excluded in the UK, at least in principle, the 5G-Expansion, but only from the core network. Similar Considerations are valid also in Germany. Many European governments have signaled in recent weeks that this could also be your course: strict Checks, no Chinese technology in the most sensitive Parts of the network. But there is no General ban, which could have led to the economic war with China.
The Brits should be the Huawei technology is really the best
signs that the USA could accept a defeat were Registered even. The US Ambassador in Berlin, Richard Grenell, had threatened in March are still open with a restriction on intelligence cooperation. On other channels, the Federal government is reached, however, the Information that the U.S. intelligence services didn't want to change to cooperation. The advance is not reconciled, it was called. The decision in London fit: The Interception to GCHQ is the closest Partner of the US secret service NSA, the British know Soft - and Hardware from Huawei, thanks to year-long examination on best. Who wanted to make Europe more undisturbed business with Huawei, was able to hide well behind the British decision.
Now the confrontation is back. What impact will it have on Europe, cannot be estimated. Huawei was a "gigantic Trojan horse," said a U.S. Official just European diplomats. The old continent was about to make a historic mistake. No one knows what is to come, the logic of the Cold war works. At the time of the trade was minimal. Today, China can not produce without US Chips. And the United States and the Rest of the world, not excluding China. (Editorial Tamedia)
