U.S. Senators Float Ban on Government Buying of Huawei, ZTE Equipment
Two U.S. senators introduced legislation that could ban government agencies from buying telecoms equipment and services from Chinese manufacturers Huawei and ZTE, in the latest sign of a tougher stance from Washington in trade between the world’s two largest economies.
The legislation introduced by Republican Sens. Tom Cotton, from the U.S. state of Arkansas, and Marco Rubio, of Florida, on Wednesday would only apply to purchases by U.S. government agencies, according to a statement on Cotton’s Twitter account. It cited national security concerns as the main reason for the law.
