As reported today, however, president Donald Trump american companies from using telecom equipment built by companies that represent a national security risk.
the united states suspects that telecom equipment from Huawei can be used by the chinese state to spy, something that Huawei has consistently denied.

president of the French republic Emmanuel Macron said today, however, that France does not have the intention to ”block Huawei or any other company”, reports the Reuters news agency.
”Our perspective is not to block Huawei or any other company, it is to maintain our national security and european independence.
But to start a technology war or a trade war... I don't think it is appropriate,” said Macron as he spoke during the conference VivaTech in Paris, reports Reuters.
