China Warns Foreign Tech Firms After Trump’s Ban

China called in top U.S. and other foreign tech firms for a warning last week that they would face what The New York Times called “dire consequences” if they cooperated with the U.S. tech ban on Huawei, the paper reported. The meetings came after the Trump administration blacklisted China’s flagship telecommunications equipment and smartphone-maker as part of an escalating trade war between the two tech superpowers.

China responded by saying it would create a list of “unreliable” foreign companies and hinted it might cut off supplies of rare earths, materials vital to most electronics manufacturing. The Wall Street Journal, for its part, reported that senior Chinese policymakers met with more than a dozen foreign firms including IntelQualcomm, ARM Holdings,  SK Hynix,  Microsoft,  Samsung and Dell.
