President Trump met with technology industry leaders on Monday to discuss a range of national security issues including plans to ease restrictions on U.S. sales to Huawei, Reuters reported Tuesday. Trump told participants such as the heads of Google and Cisco that the administration will issue “timely licensing decisions” as requested by industry.

Previously, Trump noted that he may lift restrictions on a rule mandating U.S. companies to obtain special licenses if they intend to sell components to Huawei. A bipartisan group of lawmakers last week introduced legislation prohibiting the removal of Huawei as a blacklisted company until the Trump administration addresses security concerns, according to a Politico report.
