WASHINGTON (Reuters) -- The U.S. agency responsible for government contracts on Wednesday released an interim rule for a ban on federal purchases of telecommunications equipment from five Chinese companies, including Huawei.

The ban is part of a broad U.S. push against Huawei Technologies Co Ltd, the world's largest telecommunications network gear maker, which Washington accuses of espionage and stealing intellectual property.
