Facebook said that it would cut off Huawei from its popular social networking apps to comply with US sanctions, further isolating the Chinese tech giant considered a national security threat by Washington. The social media giant said it took the step after President Donald Trump’s order barring Huawei from US technology exports over concerns that it works with Chinese intelligence.

A Facebook spokesman told the Agence France-Presse said that “We are reviewing the Commerce department’s final rule and the more recently issued temporary general license and taking steps to ensure compliance.”

The California company said people with existing Huawei smartphones with Facebook apps would continue to be able to use and download app updates provided by Facebook.

The move by Facebook is the latest to isolate Huawei, which had become the world’s second largest smartphone vendor, despite security concerns voiced in Washington.
