After the U.S. government imposed an export ban on Huawei last week, many countries around the world did not follow the United States, including some of its allies.
According to the Philippine Daily Inquirer website on May 21, preliminary findings from the Philippine National Police Anti-Cyber Crime Bureau show that there is no evidence that technology giant Huawei is engaged in "espionage activities".
Philippine National Police spokesman Bernard Barnack said that the preliminary findings were based on investigations conducted in cooperation with law enforcement agencies of other countries.
"So far, we haven't found any evidence that Huawei is engaged in espionage," he said.
According to the New Zealand Autonomous Collar Post website on May 22, Spark Telecom, a New Zealand telecommunications service provider, said it decided to continue selling Huawei smartphones. But spokeswoman Cathy Arauso said the situation was "changing" and Spark would closely monitor the information.
Andrew Bowett, deputy general manager of Huawei New Zealand Branch, said Huawei phones that New Zealanders had purchased and retailers stocked would not be affected by the latest U.S. initiatives, and customers would not need to panic.
Matt Bolan, a 2nd degree spokesman, said the company shares that view and is continuing to sell Huawei equipment in its stores.
Vodafone New Zealand spokeswoman Mira Kouchik said the company was continuing to sell Huawei equipment.
New Zealanders are "absolutely confident" that their Huawei phones will continue to support the Google market and will continue to receive security and Android updates, Bowett said.
According to RCR Wireless Industry News on May 21, after the U.S. government imposed an export ban last week, European semiconductor manufacturers said they would continue to supply Huawei Technologies Limited in China.
A spokesman for Infineon Technologies, one of Europe's largest chipmakers, said that most of its products delivered to Huawei were not subject to recent restrictions imposed by American authorities.
The spokesman also said Infineon Technologies could "adjust in our international supply chain". The Austrian microelectronics company, headquartered in Austria, also said it had not suspended its supply to Huawei, the report said.
Huawei accounted for 1.3% of Infineon's sales and 3.7% of Austrian microelectronics company's revenue, the report said.
In addition, according to a report on the Wall Street Journal website on May 21, Huawei condemned the actions taken by the United States against the company as "bullying" and urged European governments to resist the pressure of the United States to follow suit.
Reported that Europe is one of Huawei's most important international markets, but also the company's fastest growing market. Although the company has been facing resistance in the United States, many European countries, including allies in the United States, have accepted Huawei's telecommunications equipment, and consumers are snapping up its smartphones.
In Brussels, Liu Kang, chief representative of Huawei's EU agencies, told reporters on Monday that the Trump government's blacklisting of Huawei was not only an "unprecedented" attack on the Chinese technology company, but also an attack on rule-based global trade. "It's Huawei now. Tomorrow it could be any other international company," Liu Kang said at a news conference. "It's dangerous."
Reported that the White House pressure European Union governments to refrain from using Huawei equipment in 5G construction. European telecom companies use Huawei devices in their networks and often sell Huawei smartphones. So far, they have been loyal to Huawei. Vodafone Group and BT Group, two major UK operators, have publicly expressed their desire to continue using Huawei devices in 5G networks.
The British government is reviewing its telecommunications market, but officials say it will allow telecommunications companies to use Huawei's equipment in addition to the most sensitive areas of the network.
The report mentions that European leaders, including French President Mark Ron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel, have been reluctant to join the United States in pushing Huawei out of the Western market.
