WashingtonIn the midst of a dispute between Huawei and the US government, the Chinese network equipment supplier claims that more than $ 1 billion is spent on patents by US telecom group Verizon, according to an insider. A senior Huawei employee sent a payment request to Verizon in February, the Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday. A Verizon spokesman did not comment on Reuters request. But he said that the topic was not just Verizon. "Given the geopolitical context, every issue affecting Huawei has implications for the industry as a whole, raising concerns about national and international concerns."
The US mobile operator Sprint did not want to comment on the subject on request. AT & T and T-Mobile US left requests unanswered.
The US government has blacklisted Huawei. As a result, US companies are prohibited from doing business with the Chinese group. The US also wants to prevent other countries use Huawei technology. US President Donald Trump accuses the world's largest network equipment supplier that China can spy on Huawei's products. The group has rejected allegations that it helps the Chinese state in spying.
