Huawei is willing to continue buying products from U.S. companies, said founder and CEO of the Chinese tech giant Ren Zhengfei on Tuesday, according to FT.

Ren's remark came after U.S. President Donald Trump affirmed that U.S. companies are allowed to sell products to Huaweiduring a press conference at the G20 summit in Osaka.

"President Trump's statements are good for American companies," Ren said, "But we don't see much impact on what we are currently doing. We will still focus on doing our own job right."

"President Trump's statements are good for American companies," Ren said. "But we don't see much impact on what we are currently doing. We will still focus on doing our own job right."

Trump said on Saturday the ban was unfair to U.S. suppliers, who were upset that they could not sell parts and components to Huawei without U.S. government approval.

In May, Huawei was put on a U.S. list that restricts American tech firms such as Google from doing business with the Chinese telecom network equipment maker.  

In an earlier interview, Ren said that Huawei has become more united than ever because of the difficulties and external pressures, with staff members increasing by 6,000.  

"If we aren’t allowed to use U.S. components, we are very confident in our ability to use components made in China and other countries,” he said.

Huawei has taken measures to achieve self-reliance, including developing its own operation system and back-up chips.

Ren has also said that as long as U.S. companies were allowed to sell, Huawei would still buy from them even if it is able to make its own chips, as Huawei could not exist separately from others and had had good relationship with U.S. companies for decades.

Its vital that Ren and Huawei develop Huawei's own OS, chips and eco-system all of which should be different from what the US is supplying.

Huawei and Ren cannot take their own statements too lightly by skirting around their own representations. This loses the Chinese characteristics and becomes Anglo character. If they are indeed capable of and have already their own products in place, why aren't these released?

The breach of contract was first by the US when the US President first imposed a ban upon Huawei. That the US President's subsequent statement to ease the ban is a subsequent contract. The first breach and renege of agreement is legally in place. Unless of course whatever that comes out of US President's, Congress' and Pentagon's mouth are never committal. If this is the case all the agreements US signs with any nation is to be voided.

On Huawei and Mr. Ren, the world is watching if they have the integrity with their statements or not. Huawei phones aren't exactly top notched. If they claim they are technologically sophisticated, then they need to exhibit their OS, chips and eco-system albeit over a period of time. The world won't forget Huawei's and Mr. Ren's claim.

As for other phone makers like Samsung, Xiaomi, OPPO etc., it is important to come out with another 2 OS in Asia. Europe does have a valid point of preventing a monopoly when it penalised Google. Given that US has 2 OS. Asia can develop another 2. All in the world can then have 4 to choose from. If Europe wants to participate in 1 of Asia's OS, that should be welcomed.

The monopoly of the US over OS does serves as a formidable hurdle to fair competition, that would eventually come back to haunt the US later on.
Believe it or not, it's true.

Yeah, Huawei is willing to buy, but US companies are still required to get approval before selling because Huawei is still on the Entity List!  TRump's announcement at G20 meet to lift he ban on Huawei has not been implemented!
