Huawei has been on the US blacklist for months, but the Chinese company may also be a threat to other countries. It is worth noting that in January, our authorities arrested a Chinese employee Huawei and a former officer of the Internal Security Agency (then an Orange employee), both accused of espionage. In September, however Poland has signed a declaration regarding the construction of a 5G networkfrom which Huawei should be excluded. But is Microsoft happy with political pressure? Not necessarily.
We have already quoted commentary from Brad Smith, Microsoft Chief Legal Officer, who criticized Trump and regretted that the government obstructing the company from doing business with Huawei. Politicians do not give up, however. Really or not, five Republican senators warned the Redmond giant against Huawei. The Chinese company was accused of "espionage activities", "theft of technology" and "economic warfare", but this was not supported by much evidence. Smith previously commented:
We often get the answer: "Well, if you knew what we know, you would agree with us." And our answer is: "Great, show us what you know so that we can decide for ourselves. This is how this country works."
Now in open leaves to Microsoft, Senators Tom Cotton (Ark.), Marco Rubio (Fla.), Rick Scott (Fla.), Josh Hawley (Mo.) and Mike Braun (Ind.) warn the giant against Huawei, presenting him as a serious and urgent threat. The letter reads:
While the US government and US industry need to take some steps to protect our people and our telecommunications infrastructure, we do not want to cause excessive damage to these US companies. However, we believe that a review of publicly available evidence indicates that Huawei's security concerns are real and urgent.
Of course, Microsoft applies to regulations, directives, orders, prohibitions, requests and demands, as long as they are legal (and not always so) and binding. The issue of an open letter is a political act in the United States-China economic war rather than a legal text, but doing business with Huawei is de facto strongly limited by his presence on the blacklist mentioned.
It is also worth reminding that in this war ricochet was also hit by the Bill Gates foundation, which prevented the production of cheap and safe nuclear power plants in China. The decision was made on the American side. This topic is widely discussed in the documentary series "In the head of Bill Gates", which we strongly encourage you to watch!
