Serhat TUNAR -TDO- US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo stated that China is a great danger to American national security and also claimed that this amid tension will cause more US companies to cut ties with Huawei. Furthermore, he stated that the State Department has been working on this to make it happen.

Google also ceased Android support for all future Huawei devices. This will restrain the users’ access to its services, such as Gmail or YouTube. Moreover, American chip producers, such as Intel and Qualcomm also announced cutting their ties with Huawei.
