Huawei spokesperson Chase Skinner said the news was expected that the NDAA law and its implementing provisions will do nothing to ensure the protection of U.S. telecom networks and systems and rather is trade barrier based on country-of-origin, invoking punitive action without any evidence or wrong doing. -Hypebeast
