Huawei chairman says ready to sign 'no-spy' deal with UK

President Donald Trump is expected to sign an executive order this week barring USA companies from using telecommunications equipment made by firms posing a national security risk, paving the way for a ban on doing business with China's Huawei, three US officials familiar with the plan told Reuters.

According to a Reuters report Wednesday, president Donald Trump is expected to sign an executive order that would bar USA companies from using telecommunications equipment made by companies which pose a national security risk.

Huawei's chairman told reporters via an interpreter in London on Tuesday (May 14) the Chinese company would be willing to sign a "no-spy agreement" with the United Kingdom, The Guardian reports.

"The security and resilience of the UK's telecoms networks is of paramount importance, and we have strict controls for how Huawei equipment is now deployed in the United Kingdom", a British government spokesman said on Tuesday. Soon, the same might be true for US companies.

This is expected to include China's Huawei, given the USA has repeatedly claimed the company's kit could be used for spying on foreign countries by the Chinese state.

Canadian authorities last December arrested Huawei's Chief Financial Officer Meng Wanzhou at the request of the USA, which seeks her extradition over allegations of violating Iran sanctions.

The official also said that the order, which could be signed as soon as Wednesday, has nothing to do with the recent escalation of the trade conflict with China.

Huawei is offering to sign no-spy agreements with governments to sell more of its telecom equipment.

The U.S. says Chinese law compels Huawei to cooperate with Beijing's espionage agencies.

Federal Communications Commission chairman Ajit Pai said last week he is waiting for the Commerce Department to express views on how to "define the list of companies" that would be prohibited under the FCC proposal.

Liang said Huawei did not act on behalf of China's government in any worldwide market.
