Huawei has vehemently denied the US charges.

Meanwhile, the manufacturer had announced on 7th March that it will file a lawsuit against the US government in a bid to overturn the US federal ban on supplying its gear to the federal agencies under National Defence Authorisation Act (NDAA).
Ryan Koontz, an analyst with Rosenblatt Securities Inc said, “Huawei is heavily dependent on U.S. semiconductor products and would be seriously crippled without supply of key U.S. components, and the US ban may cause China to delay its 5G network build until the ban is lifted, having an impact on many global component suppliers”.
