Washington says Huawei is a national security threat on a variety of grounds citing Huawei’s ties to the Chinese government and military.
Former President Donald Trump's administration added Huawei to the US Entity List in May 2019.
Huawei in November 2020 said it was selling its budget brand smartphone unit, Honor Device, to a consortium of over 30 agents and dealers.
Last month, a group of 14 Republican lawmakers in the US House of Representatives asked the Commerce Department to add Honor to the Entity List.
The Republican lawmakers said Honor was spun off "to evade US export control policies." They cited analysts saying that "selling Honor gave it access to the semiconductor chips and software it relied on and would have presumably been blocked had the divestiture not gone through."
