NEW YORK: The US Government filed a proposal for the dismissal of a lawsuit by the Chinese telecommunications giant Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd, claiming that the United States had acted illegally as it responded to Huawei's products.
Huawei sued the US government in early March in a complaint filed in the Federal Government of Texas and said that a law limiting its US business was constitutional.
The company has been part of the ongoing trade war between the US and China, which has been hanging over the financial markets, with President Donald Trump, who recently agreed to loosen the restrictions on Huawei after met with Chinese President Xi Jinping at the 20th Summit.
Top representatives of the two countries are organizing to resume talks next week, according to Trump administration officials.
On Wednesday, the US government said that because the company was still blacklisted, lice requests from US companies seeking to import products to Huawei were reviewed "under the highest national security controls."
The government's proposal was filed in the US District Court for the Eastern District of Texas, the same court where the original complaint was filed.
Huawei did not immediately return a request for comment.
