WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. Secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, said on Tuesday that the United States was not sending “mixed messages” at Huawei, and he does not believe in the AMERICAN “black list” of the Chinese telecoms giant, will block the trade agreement with China.

“I don’t think there’s a mixed message at all,” Pompeo said in an interview with CNBC.

“The threat posed by Chinese telecommunications systems in the interior of the Us networks and, within networks, around the world, it presents an enormous risk to national security risk,” he said.

Washington blacklisted Huawei and in May, alleging the Chinese company has been involved in activities contrary to U.S. national security or foreign policy interests.

The United States has extended a stay of execution which Smartphone to buy components from U.S. companies to supply existing customers, and to the Ministry of Commerce said on Monday, but will be moved to the add for more than 40 of the Smartphone’s all units of the economic time.

The President, Donald Trump, however, on the weekend, there would be no extension to tell what was going to happen, it would have the “opposite effect.”

“We’re not really open to doing business with them,” He said on Sunday.

Huawei, the world’s largest telecoms-equipment-maker, is prohibited from purchasing U.s. parts and components for the manufacture of a new product without any additional special licenses.

The Huawei dispute is part of a trade war between the world’s two largest economies. The talks have been at a status quo for now, with the threat of more tariffs and other trade restrictions are hanging over the world economy.

Asked if China’s President, Xi Jinping, was stalling the negotiations, as a result of the US actions in the direction of the Smartphone, Pompeo said, “That’s not our experience. That’s not what’s happening right now.”

“I think that he would be willing to engage in a complex set of trade negotiations,” Pompeo told CNBC. “Well, I’m sorry, he’s not running away from it, and he didn’t say,” I will not talk to you if you do these things.'”

In the United States of america, in May, added Huawei to its so-called Entity List, effectively prohibiting the telecom giant is out with the purchasing of parts and components to U.s. companies without the prior approval of the central government.

Shortly thereafter, the Commerce Department allowed Huawei to buy some American-made goods to minimize the disruption to its customers, including the rural US telecommunications companies that use Huawei equipment in their networks.

Pomepo admitted that “the world was late to the game, and the Chinese telecommunications companies, get a jump start on the supply of equipment for the networks of the United States of america and its allies. He told me that it will take time to unravel, Huawei, and other Chinese systems.

“There is a huge cost for some of these changes. You can’t tear it and tear it all up in one go,” he said. “Our efforts to put together a project where they are … the risk is that the Chinese Communist y-affiliated telecom companies in the United States of america, or of the trusted networks, to which the United States holds in the world.”

Huawei has repeatedly denied it is controlled by China’s ruling Communist y.
