Chinese telecoms giant Huawei has said it is willing to work with the Trump administration after it was slapped with a ban on buying components from US firms without special approvals.
US President Donald Trump yesterday also signed an executive order which bans US companies from using telecoms equipment made by firms believed to threaten national security.
While not directly mentioning Huawei, the order was seen as another assault on the Chinese giant, which has faced accusations that its equipment could be used for spying.
Huawei said it is “ready and willing to engage with the US government and come up with effective measures to ensure product security”.
It added: "Restricting Huawei from doing business in the US will not make the US more secure or stronger; instead, this will only serve to limit the US to inferior yet more expensive alternatives, leaving the US lagging behind in 5G deployment, and eventually harming the interests of US companies and consumers.
"In addition, unreasonable restrictions will infringe upon Huawei's rights and raise other serious legal issues."
