On Tuesday, the Federal Communications Commission officially designated telecommunications companies Huawei and ZTE as threats to national security.

"Both companies have close ties to the Chinese Communist Party and China's military apparatus, and both companies are broadly subject to Chinese law obligating them to cooperate with the country's intelligence services."

The statement from Pai follows a public notice issued by the Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau announcing that "it has released orders issuing final designations of Huawei and ZTE, as well as their parents, affiliates, and subsidiaries, as companies posing a national security threat to the integrity of communications networks and the communications supply chain pursuant to 47 CFR § 54.9."
