WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross said on Monday that the U.S. government will extend it by the extension given to Huawei Technologies, which enables the Chinese company to buy supplies from AMERICAN companies, so as to maintain the existing customers, even when nearly 50 of its units will have been added to a U.S. economic time.

The ministry said in a statement that the 90-day extension is intended to be paid by the consumers in America will have the appropriate amount of time to make the transition away from the Smartphone devices, given the persistence of the national security and foreign policy, not a threat.”
“As we continue to urge consumers to make the transition away from Huawei’s products, we have to recognize that you need more time in order to avoid any disruption,” Ross said in a statement, which is the expected resolution for the first time, reported on Friday by Reuters.
He also said that he will add a 46-Ascend the branches of the so-called “Entity List” – a list of all businesses are effectively excluded from doing business with customers in the united states, raising the total number to more than 100 Smartphone with entities that are covered by the restrictions.
The list includes Huawei, has subsidiaries in Argentina, Australia, austria, Belarus, China, Costa Rica, croatia, France, germany, India, Italy, Mexico and many other countries as well.
Ross said the extension was made in order to support its customers in the united states, many of which will work with the networks in the rural areas of the united states.
“We have to give them a little more time to wean themselves off it,” Ross told Fox Business Network earlier.
A short time after placing it on the “black list” of the company, and in May, the Commerce Department in the first instance, allowed Huawei to buy some American-made goods in a move aimed at minimising the disruption for customers.
Huawei had no immediate comment on Monday.
The extension, by means of Feb. 18 is renewed to an agreement for the continuation of the Chinese company, the ability to take care of the maintenance of the existing telecommunication networks and the provision of software updates, latest Huawei mobile phones.
The Ministry of Commerce said on Monday that it is now that the exporter, re-exporter, or transferor to, a certification statement by a Huawei mobile entity, prior to the use of a temporary general license.
To ask what is going to happen in November to AMERICAN companies, Ross said, “all of us have had plenty of notice of it, there are a number of discussions with the president.”
When the us Department of Commerce blocked Huawei from buying U.S. goods this year, it was seen as a major escalation in the Sino-US trade war.
The US government is in the black list of Smartphone from the Chinese company that is involved in activities contrary to the national security or foreign policy interests.
As an example, the black order, was quoted in a pending federal criminal case relating to allegations of Huawei violated U.S. sanctions on Iran. Huawei has pleaded not guilty in the case.
The it should be noted that the prosecution also accused Huawei of “misleading and obstructive acts.”
At the same time, the United States, says a Huawei ascend smart phones, and network equipment used by China to spy on Americans, and the allegations the company has repeatedly rejected.
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.

Many Smartphone vendors have applied for the special licenses to sell to the company. Ross told reporters at the end of last month that it had received more than 50 applications, and he expects more to receive them. He said on Monday that there was no “specific licenses will be issued for all of it.”
A Washington trade lawyer Doug Jacobson said it is not surprising, therefore, that the extension was granted: “It will take time for telecommunications operators to find alternative suppliers of the equipment.”
Of the $70 billion that the Smartphone is spent on the purchase of the component 2018, as the $11 billion went to US companies, including Qualcomm, Intel, and Micron Technology. Intel declined to comment on Monday.
