TOKYO (Reuters) – the japanese Panasonic Corp said on Friday it is not stopped any deliveries of components to Huawei Technologies, a day after it originally called for a cessation of the transactions in line with U.S. export controls against the Chinese company.

“There are no transactions with Huawei are suspended at the moment,” a Panasonic representative told Reuters. “We are still making checks to see if the ban applies to all our products.”

The Osaka-based company said on Thursday it had “instructed employees to halt transactions with Huawei and its 68 subsidiaries under the AMERICAN prohibition.”

The Chinese unit later in a separate statement that it is still with Huawei, despite the fact that transactions are not covered by the prohibition is not of influence.
