U.S. Eases Up on Huawei as Taiwan Boosts China-Linked Trade, Media Penalties

Washington on Tuesdaymoved to temporarily dial back trade restrictions on Chinese telecoms giant Huawei in a bid to limitdisruption to its customers, extending the company's license to buyU.S.-made goods until August.

Huawei was banned from buying U.S. goods by the Commerce Department last week over national security concerns, while Google onMonday announced it was terminating some updates to its Android operating system supplied to the company. The administration of President Donald Trump had earlier added Huawei, the second-biggest manufacturer of smartphones, to a list of banned companies.
