Pentagon Lists Huawei, Hikvision as Companies Controlled by Chinese Military

The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) produced an internal document this week listing 20 Chinese companies it believes are owned or controlled by the People’s Liberation Army (PLA). The list, first reported by Reuters on Wednesday, includes telecom giant Huawei and Hikvision, a top supplier of video surveillance equipment. Both companies were blacklisted by the United States last year over security concerns.
