Microsoft granted license to trade software with Huawei




According to a Reuters report yesterday, Microsoft has been licensed to export software to China's Huawei. The event came after the US government extended a temporary license to domestic companies for the next 90 days.

"On November 20, the Department of Commerce approved Microsoft's license request to export Huawei mass-market software," a Microsoft spokesman said in a written statement.

Huawei was blacklisted in May, and in addition, US President Donald Trump also signed an executive order banning US companies from dealing with Huawei because of national security concerns. Huawei has repeatedly denied all the allegations.

Following the ban, two three-month license extensions were approved, one in May and the other in August.

Huawei says the license extension does not change the fact that the company is not being treated fairly by the US government.

"We have always thought that such a decision by the US government was doing more harm to America itself than to Huawei," the company said in a press release.
