WASHINGTON, June 25 (Xinhua) – President Trump's government announced a list of companies from China with military ties that could become the basis for new US sanctions.

Among them are tech giant Huawei, Hikvision and China Mobile and China Telecom. However, the list of companies, purportedly, by a Defense Department official, who did not want to be identified, has already reached the US House of Representatives.

Huawei was listed on the blacklist last year due to national security issues, and Washington has led an international campaign to persuade allies to withdraw Huawei while building their 5G network.
