SHENZHEN -- Washington's move to put Huawei Technologies on its trade blacklist, which essentially blocks U.S. companies from doing business with the Chinese telecom equipment major, is affecting over 1,200 U.S. suppliers, the company's legal executive said in a news conference in Shenzhen on Wednesday.

The measure "sets a very dangerous precedent," said Song Liuping, Huawei's chief legal officer. "Today it is telecom and Huawei, tomorrow it could be your company, your industry, your customers," he added.
