Huawei has been having it tough in the last few weeks.

Chinese technology giant Huawei has said security issues raised in a government report could take between three and five years to resolve.

US President Donald Trump is expected to sign an executive order next week that would ban Chinese telecommunication equipment from US wireless networks, the Politico website reported citing sources.

President Donald Trump is expected to sign an executive order next week that would ban Chinese telecommunication equipment from USA wireless networks, Politico reported late Thursday, citing three sources.

Acting attorney general: I have 'not interfered' with Mueller investigation
Doug Collins , R-Ga., tried to adjourn the hearing before it started, saying it was an attempt at assassinating Trump's character. Whitaker said that he understood that the issues discussed were important to Cohen and would try to answer the best he could.

It's believed Huawei and ZTE aren't specifically named in the executive order, but the companies would obviously fall under the category of Chinese telecom equipment providers.

Even though the government wants to keep out Chinese vendors, the USA telecom companies have no clear guidance on how to proceed with a 5G build up minus Huawei.

The company also denied claims it could be compelled to assist Chinese national intelligence work using information gathered from the UK.

"The governments in some countries have labelled Huawei as a security threat, but they have never substantiated these allegations with solid evidence". Allegedly, Huawei's 5G infrastructure equipment can come with backdoors, allowing the Chinese government to spy on communications of any country using Huawei's gear.

Huawei defended itself in a letter to United Kingdom lawmakers made public this week, saying that it would take up to five years to see "tangible results" in upgrading its systems.

Since 2012, the world's largest maker of networking equipment, Huawei, has been barred from selling those products in the US on the explanation of security concerns by the USA government. "Were Huawei ever to engage in malicious behaviour, it would not go unnoticed - and it would certainly destroy our business".

In January, the Department of Justice framed a slew of charges against Huawei and sought the extradition of its chief financial officer for violating sanctions on Iran. And in January, DOJ unsealed a suite of charges against Huawei and its chief financial officer, who faces extradition to the United States for violating sanctions on Iran.
