Pentagon Bans Sale of ZTE, Huawei Phones on Military Bases

Pentagon Bans Sale of ZTE, Huawei Phones on Military Bases

After advising consumers and carriers against buying and selling devices made by Huawei and ZTE, and after banning ZTE from dealing with US-based firms, the United States government is making another move in its fight against the two Chinese smartphone maker.

The Pentagon said in a statement that the order to halt the sale of Huawei and ZTE phones and remove them from the military exchanges was given on last Friday.

The aforementioned risk refers to the U.S. government's fear that China could order Huawei or ZTE to create a backdoor in their devices for spying, a possibility that both companies have denied.

"Huawei and ZTE devices may pose".

Dangling vehicle baffles Toronto police
As of about 10:30 a.m., the vehicle had been cut down by Toronto Fire. "I think it is basically green space", he said. Police initially suggested that it was part of a movie shoot but later said no such shoot was authorized.

The Federal Communications Commission in April proposed barring the use of funds from a government program to purchase equipment or services from companies that pose a security threat to US communications networks. In light of this information, it was not prudent for the department's exchanges to continue selling them. The US government imposed a ban on American tech, which means ZTE can't buy phone components created by US companies.

Huawei is the world's third largest smartphone maker, and ZTE is the fourth largest seller in the United States.

Wall Street Journal reports that Washington despatched a team to Beijing headed by Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin to hold talks over an ever-worsening economic relationship with China. As well, officials indicate that the government may evaluate whether more drastic measures are necessary - that is, whether to ban Huawei and ZTE devices from use by troops altogether. Huawei denies that its devices are used in espionage, and says that it is an employee owned company that has never been asked to spy on or sabotage another country. Best Buy recently made a decision to stop selling Huawei gear in the US. The Pentagon spokesperson did state that the Pentagon is now looking into sending out a military-wide warning about using phones manufactured by either Chinese company.
