STATE DEPARTMENT – The United States is imposing visa restrictions on certain employees of Chinese technology companies, including Huawei, for providing “material support to regimes engaging in human rights violations and abuses globally.”
The announcement is seen as the latest move to punish Chinese Communist Party’s alleged human rights abuses against China’s minority Muslim population.
Certain Huawei employees provide material support to the CCP regime that commits human rights abuses,” said Pompeo in a separate statement.
The State Department did not provide specific names of employees of Chinese technology companies affected by the visa restrictions.
“Foreign military sales are government-to-government transactions,” said Lockheed Martin, adding it works closely with the U.S. government on any military sales to international customers.
