This appeasement speech is surprising to say the least when we know that the Chinese tycoon is affected professionally and personally by this passing of arms between Beijing and Washington.

Huawei is now the world’s second largest smartphone maker (behind Samsung and ahead of Apple) and the world’s leading supplier of network and telecom equipment.
