In an interview with Associated Press on Tuesday, the Chinese technology giant, Huawei, founder Ren Zhengfei said that he expects no relief from the US export curbs due to the political climate in Washington but expressed confidence the company will thrive because it is developing its own technology.

In response to Monday’s announcement by the US on adding more of Huawei’s subsidiaries to the entity list, Ren noted: “Whether the entity list is extended or not, that will not have a substantial impact on Huawei’s business. We can do well without relying on American companies.”

No one in Washington would risk standing up for the company.
