OREANDA-NEWSRen Founder of the Chinese telecommunications giant Huawei Technologies, Ren Zhengfei, announced his readiness to sell a license for fifth-generation (5G) network technology to a US company. This was reported on Thursday by the American News Agency.

“We would like to offer an exclusive license for one company from the West so that it can achieve economies of scale in order to maintain the business. I think it should be an American company”, the agency quoted the businessman as saying. It's about licensing Huawei's full 5G wireless technology portfolio, including chip design, hardware and software, manufacturing know-how.

Ren Zhengfei noted that this should be a company from the United States, as there are competitors in Europe, such as Nokia and Ericsson, who do not need assistance in this area. On May 15, US President Donald Trump signed a decree introducing a state of emergency to protect the US information and communications infrastructure from external threats. As a result, the U.S. Department of Commerce has blacklisted Huawei since May 17 due to a threat to national security.

In August last year, Trump signed a decree that banned US departments from using equipment manufactured by Huawei and the Chinese company ZTE. The leadership of Huawei called this decision an infringement of the United States on the legal rights of Chinese enterprises, adding that thereby Washington sentenced himself to lag in the deployment of 5G network.

Despite the fact that Huawei has managed to achieve considerable success in the markets of some Western countries, the aggravation of the US-Chinese trade war is causing great harm to the company. The US government not only prohibits American companies from cooperating with Huawei, but also forces other countries to do the same.
