Reuters: Five Chinese companies pose threat to U.S. national security: FCC
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) on Friday designated five Chinese companies as posing a threat to national security under a 2019 law aimed at protecting U.S. communications networks.
The FCC said the companies included Huawei Technologies Co, ZTE Corp, Hytera Communications Corp, Hangzhou Hikvision Digital Technology Co and Zhejiang Dahua Technology Co.
A 2019 law requires the FCC to identify companies producing telecommunications equipment and services “that have been found to pose an unacceptable risk to U.S. national security.”
Acting FCC Chairwoman Jessica Rosenworcel said in a statement: “This list provides meaningful guidance that will ensure that as next-generation networks are built across the country, they do not repeat the mistakes of the past or use equipment or services that will pose a threat to U.S. national security or the security and safety of Americans.”

WNU Editor: Too bad about Hikvision Digital Technology Co. IMHO they produce the best CCTV cameras in the world.
The Chinese are seeing this designation of five of their top companies as a "bargaining ploy" …. Huawei may become a bargaining chip at Quad meeting following reportedly new US, Indian bans: experts (Global Times). I am not sure about that. This designation is going to stand. And crying about it (see below) is not going to change the situation.
Facts like further restrictions on Huawei suppliers show once again that the US is an unreliable country with zero credibility. The US must immediately stop oppressing Chinese firms & treat them in a fair, just & non-discriminatory manner. pic.twitter.com/RluypVliL7
