President Trump is preparing to ban Chinese vendor Huawei from selling its telecommunication equipment to United States wireless carriers, according to Politico.

The letter follows concerns raised a year ago by the Huawei Cyber Security Evaluation Centre (HCSEC) in its annual report.

"Our solid track record in security is our strongest evidence [against the security allegations]", said Ryan Ding, the head of Huawei's carrier business group.

The government now had no own information on whether the Chinese company could be a security threat, Altmaier was quoted as saying. "By working closely with our European partners, we are creating a better future for all of us". Germany has said it wants high data security standards for its 5G network.

"As was made clear in July's (report), the NCSC has concerns around a range of technical issues and has set out improvements the company must make", a spokeswoman said in a statement.

The US giant took to Twitter at about 9am EST to confirm an "issue", promising to research. Some customers also reported the issue was impacting credit cards.

The warnings seem to have gained some ground in Europe, where it was noted that the Chinese National Intelligence Law of 2017 requiring all firms and individuals at home and overseas to cooperate with the state intelligence agencies. Four products were then found by the NCSC to be lacking binary equivalence, while an additional issue was found in Huawei's use of commercial and open-source third-party components, with not all being managed through the agreed process.

The supervisory panel also said that "technical issues" had been identified in Huawei's engineering processes, leading to "new risks in the United Kingdom telecommunications networks".

While they continue to work toward a final decision, the ministers concluded that singling out Huawei from a list of suppliers was not legally viable, the official said Thursday on condition of anonymity in accordance with government protocol.

In a Brussels ballroom packed with more than 100 mostly European guests, Huawei's envoy to the European Union institutions launched into a robust defence of the company. "Were Huawei ever to engage in malicious behaviour, it would not go unnoticed - and it would certainly destroy our business".

The law mandates any organisation and citizen to support and assist national intelligence in their investigations and to keep information related to such investigations. People with knowledge of the matter said it will likely further criticise Huawei's slow response and detail tense relations with British officials.
