Senators of the United States call for further action against the dealings of Huawei firm in Iran. For instance, they recommended to the State Department to investigate the company's present contracts.
The Chinese telecommunication and hardware company has been accused of supplying software in Iran that is meant to be used to support a repressive regime. The company had voluntarily agreed to restrict its deals in Iran in early December, but today a letter demanding further investigation has been published in the press.
Huawei, after accusations that the firm’s software was being used by mobile networks in Iran, agreed to adhere to the imposed sanctions and never inked any more deals. However, that hasn’t been enough to satisfy the American lawmakers who didn't believe that its current contracts are kosher.
At the moment, Huawei has a less than squeaky-clean image in the market. The United States has emphasized its links with the Chinese government. Meanwhile, the US hasn't had the most impressive record either, especially taking into account one of the senators trying to pass a Global Online Freedom Act to stop American companies like Cisco and IBM from participating in deals raising censorship concerns.
It seems that the American government is doing its best to filter its own networks right now, with the politicians pushing the Stop Online Piracy Act, which industry observers say can’t do much to stop piracy but can do something to influence freedom of the Internet. That’s why Huawei is currently in for a rough ride, regardless of its assertions that the company has done nothing wrong in Iran.
Last month Huawei announced on its official site that its business in Iran has been in full compliance with all applicable legislation and regulations, including those of the United Nations, United States and European Union. Now 6 senators are calling for an investigation into whether the current contracts of the company are against sanctions launched in 2010.
The company’s representative said that one of the fundamental principles governing their global operations is to comply with all relevant international and local legislation and rules, including applicable American ones. Unfortunately, some Members of Congress are still citing inaccurate media reports, including groundless allegations and errors of fact.

|I'm not even going to read the article because simply from the title of it I can say what many around the globe are thinking - Why can't the US just mind their own damn problems? Always shoving their red, white, and blue nose into other people's tihs and then going about with that nose up in the air for everyone else to see how yttihs America is. I love this beautiful land called United States of America, but we have our own problems on the homeland being ignored while trying to run the rest of the world. STOP IT!|

|Completely over your head ,first off the UN has had sanctions against Iran for several decades about who can deal in what with them , for you simple minded folks that' s United Nations as in a group of nations ,which I'm sure your home county is a member of.Second If any other country had even 1% of the intestinal fortitude of the US why don't the step up and tow the line ,which you will never see , the US doesn't want to run the entire world , but we also don't want some asshats feel that they can blow the shit out of whoever for some pissass reason like religion .|

|The wealthy Americans don't give a sh!t about america they only use it for its laws to protect them from stealing|
|@4 If the UN wants to control the world why does it always say US controls this; the US tells that country to do this; the US makes this other nation an ultimatum... For a long time now it's always seemingly been US in the title, not UN. Yes, a couple times it will post UN, but you have to admit the majority of headlines will read US.|
|trialNerror the reason Us has to do the dirty work is the UN are pussies and refuse to do what they were originally created to do; stop azzclown like Saddam and that nutcase prez in Iran..|
Truth be known many Americans are sick and tired of dying for other lazy azzclowns who refuse to take care of their own business. Soon America is pulling back THEN you whiners will scream for them to come back when you see China's army marching across your borders. Or another dictators doing genocide against their own people while the UN and YOU just sit there and whine.
Out of How many Disasters in the world occur? many and who is there FIRST ALL THE TIME with food, people and MONEY to help?
USA Britain and a very few other countries.
Do you see China? Iran? Saudi Arabia? and others? NO you don't; but if the USA is a little slow to respond you all bitch about it as well.
FINALLY if USA is so bad? then why has Millions sneak across its borders to live there? When they are caught and their buts kicks back across the border YOU whiners bitch they are racists.
