HPE sees 'no indication' its tech was sold to Chinese military, seeks answers from Uncle Sam on sanctions
HPE has said it sees "no indication" its technology has been sold to China's military. This comes after a company within its China-based joint-venture New H3C – which is the exclusive provider of HPE servers, storage, and associated technical services in the Middle Kingdom – was last week added to the USA's Entity List of …

As the article says the company in question isn't controlled by HPE, just a joint venture it retains non-controlling ownership stake in - technically a 3Com/Huawei joint venture that HPE just inherited a financial stake in when they bought 3Com. While I believe they work together very closely there's really no reason this company couldn't be working with the Chinese government without HPE having any clue and with no part of that being weird or shady.

The US sanctions have very little (if anything) to do with military activity - they are aimed at damaging China's industries ability to compete with US industries.
The big problem with Huawei networking equipment was that is was cheaper than Cisco's so Cisco went crying to the US politicians to get Huawei banned.
The USA - the country with the best government money can buy.

Re: US sanctions
It wasn't just that it was cheaper. In most cases it was more stable (because it wasn't overloaded with code) and didn't have stupid extra nickel&diming license restrictions for "features"
Cisco itself took over the market from 3com and Bay Networks by doing exactly the same thing in the 1990s but that was OK because everyone was American
I do like pointing out that the big 2016 "video presentation on how insecure Huawei kit is", turned out to be a presentation about how bad the comware (3com licensed) joint venture stuff was that Huawei had recently abandoned in favour of Wind River Linux - and the holes demonstrated were all still present in HP/3com equipment for a long time after that presentation was aired
