Despite the first round of US-China trade talks reportedly reaching an “optimistic” conclusion as the two sides made progress on a number of issues – including China’s controversial officially-sanctioned IP theft – the Wall Street Journal reported on Thursday that the US is continuing its crackdown on Huawei Technologies by prohibiting a US-based Huawei subsidiary from exporting technologies developed in a Silicon Valley lab back to the mainland. The escalation comes as the US is warning its allies to avoid Huawei’s telecoms equipment due to concerns about its vulnerability to infiltration by the Chinese government, to which Huawei reportedly maintains close ties (though Huawei insists that it is an independent company cooperatively owned by its employees). The US is also in the process of extraditing Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou over charges that she knowingly lied to banks to try and conceal violations of US and EU sanctions against Iran.
