Xiaomi, which has been blacklisted by the US Government for “collaborating with the Chinese military,” will press charges against the US administration.
In recent years, Huawei has been accused of espionage and blacklisted by then US President Donald Trump. Serious sanctions against the company were then put in place and an embargo was imposed.
The company that rose during this period when Huawei was having problems was Xiaomi, another Chinese manufacturer. In recent weeks, Xiaomi has also been blacklisted for working with the Chinese military. It has now been suggested that Xiaomi, which has announced it is not working with the Chinese military and denies the allegations, has now applied to the court.
According to reports, Xiaomi has filed a court petition with the Washington district attorney’s office. The firm has been prosecuting from the US Department of Defense and Treasury, particularly Janet Yellen, while called the blacklist decision “unlawful and unconstitutional.”
In the petition as before, Xiaomi stated that the firm was not controlled by the Chinese People’s Liberation Army. When the U.S. administration made the blacklist decision, it did not provide any evidence that the firm was associated with the Chinese military. The firm’s executive shares are also owned by its founders, Lin Bin and Lei Jun.
Noting another point in the petition, the firm stated that having an “open relationship with the military”, as mentioned, would also make it impossible for them to do business with their partners, that a significant number of its investors are FROM the United States and that their relationship with these partners is critical.

Although blacklisted, Xiaomi is able to continue importing technology to the US, but cannot obtain a license. Companies like Huawei do not have such an alternative and cannot supply parts from the US.
With the court of Xiaomi, a new era has begun in the process between the UNITED States and the company. Let’s see if the Chinese manufacturer can find what it’s looking for in U.S. courts. Or will he be subject to tougher sanctions?
