Chinese telecoms equipment maker Huawei says it is the victim of US "bullying" and is working with Google to respond to trade restrictions imposed by Washington last week, a senior Huawei executive says.

Google declined to comment on Tuesday.

The US government said it imposed the restrictions because of Huawei's involvement in activities contrary to national security or foreign policy interests.

On Monday, it temporarily eased the curbs to minimise disruption for customers, a move dismissed by Huawei's founder who said the tech firm had prepared for US action.

Reuters reported on Sunday that Alphabet Inc's Google suspended business with Huawei that requires the transfer of hardware, software and technical services except those publicly available via open source licensing, citing a source familiar with the matter.

"They (Google) have zero motivation to block us. We are working closely with Google to find out how Huawei can handle the situation and the impact from the US Department of Commerce decision," Abraham Liu, Huawei's representative to the EU institutions told Reuters.

Liu said Huawei did not blame Google for its decision and that it was too early to say what the consequences will be.

"Huawei is becoming the victim of the bullying by the US administration. This is not just an attack against Huawei. It is an attack on the liberal, rules-based order."

Restraint of trade, by the West. The Market does not exist.
