Financial officer and daughter of the founder of Huawei Meng Wanzhou, which in December was arrested in Canada, recognized the existence of the office in Iran, which partially confirms the accusations of the USA. This became known on Wednesday, August 21. Her father, meanwhile, acknowledged the unenviable position of the company, although it has repeatedly said that U.S. sanctions are not so terrible, according to news Agency “Khabarovsk Krai today” with reference to
The founder of Huawei is Ren Zhengfei outlined the position of the Corporation as a “between life and death” in the corporate letter, a copy of which was available to Bloomberg.

Otherwise, they face dismissal: “They will have to look for a job in the domestic market. Their salary will be reduced every three months if they don’t find a use”.
Google, come back
After the inclusion of Huawei in the black sheet c Corporation refused to cooperate with Google. Huawei has lost access to updates of the Android operating system, which is operated by its devices. The smartphone owners can continue to use it, but the new model will not be able to work with Google Play, Chrome, mail with Gmail, YouTube and maps.

The beginning of August, Huawei has presented its operating system OS Harmony (aka Hongmeng), for the sake of accelerating the development of which the company switched to 24-hour operation.
