Science & Tech A- A A+

Japan's Panasonic on Thursday said it would stop supplying some components to Huawei, joining a growing list of firms distancing themselves from the Chinese telecoms giant after a U.S. ban over security concerns.

The announcement came a day after four major Japanese and British mobile carriers said they would delay releasing new Huawei handsets.

"We've stopped all business transactions with Huawei and its 68 group companies... that are subject to the U.S. government ban," Panasonic spokesman Joe Flynn told AFP.

"Yesterday an internal instruction to fully enforce that rule was issued," he added.

Flynn said Panasonic's business with Huawei includes the supply of "electronic parts," but declined to provide further details.

Washington's restrictions affect products made fully or partially in the United States, where Panasonic manufactures some of the components it supplies to Huawei, the Japanese firm said
