The United States Congress has registered the Draft Law “Defending US Government Communications Act”, one of the points of which is the ban on the use of Huawei and ZTE products by government agencies. The essence of the bill is to prohibit use in all state authorities, departments, services and units of any telecommunications devices manufactured by Chinese companies Huawei and ZTE. The author of the bill, the congressman from Texas, Mike Conaway, calls the US national security threat the reason for the introduction of such restrictions. According to him, these manufacturers are highly likely to have strong ties with the Chinese government and can transmit information to the intelligence agency of this country. In the figurative expression of the congressman, the use of devices by government bodies \ Doubt about the appropriateness of using Huawei and ZTE devices arose as early as 2010, when four senators sent a letter to the Federal Communications Commission, which accused the company of collaborating with government authorities in China. In 2011, both companies were mentioned in the report of the House Standing Intelligence Committee as unreliable. Then the ban on the acquisition by government agencies of devices from Huawei and ZTE was only advisory in nature. Huawei’s failures continue, following a failed agreement with mobile operator AT\u0026T, which opened the way for the flagship smartphone Mate 10 Pro to enter the US market, a bill has appeared that completely blocks the possibility of selling the company’s products in the USA.
