U.S. Companies Claim Legal Loophole to Resume Huawei Shipments

U.S. pressure on Huawei Technologies Co. increased as senators voted to cite the Chinese telecommunications gear maker as a security risk ahead of this week’s meeting between President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping.

The Senate Foreign Relations Committee, on a voice vote, passed a resolution Tuesday designating Huawei and fellow Chinese equipment maker ZTE Corp. as a threat to the national security of the U.S. and its allies. The measure, which moves on for further votes, called for more pressure for allies to shun the companies’ network equipment.
