The pledge came as President Trump is preparing to sign an executive order banning American companies from using telecommunications equipment made by companies deemed to be a national security risk, which would effectively bar the Chinese tech giant from the USA market.

It gives the secretary of commerce the power to "prohibit transactions posing an unacceptable risk to the national security", the statement adds. In January 2018, USA carriers shunned Huawei's newly-launched flagship, the Mate 10 Pro.

Sen. Tom Cotton, Arkansas Republican, dubbed Chinese tech components a "Trojan horse", while others said the line between the Chinese government and private industry remains fuzzy. Huawei, which has repeatedly denied the allegations, did not immediately comment.

HUAWEI HAS said that it would be willing to sign "no-spy" contracts with governments who allow it to supply 5G equipment.

Taken together, the two moves threaten Huawei's ability to continue to sell many products because of its reliance on American suppliers, and represents a significant escalation in the USA government's worldwide campaign against the company.

The order lands amid intensifying concern among USA intelligence about the vulnerability of networks that rely on Huawei components.

Trump previously resisted signing the order, partly because he did not want to jeopardise a potential trade deal with China.
