In late May, Huawei’s founder and CEO Ren Zhengfei expressed confidence in an interview with Chinese media that the US crackdown on the tech giant would fail to prod other countries to follow suit, ONAreports citing Sputnik.

South China Morning Post reported Tuesday that Huawei had paused production of its smartphones as the company is attempting to overcome difficulties after US corporations, such as Google and Microsoft as well as major semiconductor makers, including Intel, Qualcomm, Xilinx and Broadcom, cut ties with the Chinese tech giant.

According to the media outlet, the US ban on technology transfer to the Asian company has prevented Huawei from acquiring supplies crucial for international sales, including Intel chips and Google's Android system.
