Chinese technology giant Huawei has vacated one of its lawsuits against the U.S., after equipment taken by Washington almost two years ago was returned to the company.
In September 2017, U.S. authorities confiscated material on its way back to China from a Huawei testing facility in California.
The seizure occurred due to doubts as to whether the gear required a specific license to be shipped back to China. Huawei stated that it did not.
In August, Huawei said the U.S. government told the company that no export license was required to ship the equipment back to China, and the gear was returned.
Huawei has been a central battleground in the ongoing trade war between America and China, this summer Huawei was placed on a so-called entity-list prohibiting U.S. companies from trading with it. This dismissal appears to be one of the few instances of a disagreement being fully resolved.
Washington has long claimed that Huawei equipment is a national security risk as it could be used to spy on Americans. Huawei does have strong and historic links with the Chinese army and with the upper echelons of the Chinese Communist Party.
The company has consistently denied being a national security threat.
