The US Pentagon has put out a list of 20 companies it says are owned or controlled by China’s military, which might open them up to potential additional US sanctions. The list includes names like Huawei Technologies Co. and Hangzhou Hikvision Digital Technology.

This was second bad news of the day for Huawei after US secretary of state Mike Pompeo accused the company for being a "tool of the CCP surveillance state."

In letters to lawmakers dated June 24, the Pentagon said it was providing a list of “Communist Chinese military companies operating in the United States." The list was first requested in the fiscal 1999 defense policy law.

The move’s implications were not immediately clear, but it came as relations between the two superpowers continue to deteriorate, and as China has become an election year issue in the U.S.

The companies on the list are:

Aviation Industry Corporation of China; China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation; China Aerospace Science and Industry Corporation; China Electronics Technology Group Corporation; China South Industries Group Corporation; China Shipbuilding Industry Corporation; China State Shipbuilding Corporation; China North Industries Group Corporation; Huawei Technologies Co.; Hangzhou Hikvision Digital Technology Co.; Inspur Group; Aero Engine Corporation of China; China Railway Construction Corporation; CRRC Corp.; Panda Electronics Group; Dawning Information Industry Co.; China Mobile Communications Group; China General Nuclear Power Corp.; China National Nuclear Power Corp.; China Telecommunications Corp.
