US expands sanctions, limits technology access to China’s Huawei
The US administration on Monday expanded its sanctions on China’s Huawei, a move aimed at further limiting the tech giant’s access to computer chips and other technology.

Pompeo said the new sanctions were imposed “to protect US national security, our citizens’ privacy, and
