Radio NZ reports:
Huawei is the world’s biggest telecom network gear maker, but the Trump administration has said the firm is too close to the Chinese government and poses a national security risk.
He has lobbied United States allies to keep Huawei out of next-generation 5G telecommunications infrastructure.
Now, as he tries to restart trade talks with China, Mr Trump has said he will allow US tech companies to resume selling products to Huawei.
He said a ban wasn’t fair to US suppliers, who were upset by the move.
Tech commentator Paul Brislen said this is significant, given the US-led, global disapproval Huawei was facing.
If it was just about security, there is no way Trump would be reversing his position. It has just been about trade negotiations.
