Following Google's announcement that it has severed relations with Huawei, seen by Washington as a national security threat, Lithuanian telecoms companies say they do not know yet how the sanctions will affect the Chinese technology giant's phones, the online news site Lzinios.lt reported on Tuesday.

Telia Lietuva spokesman Audrius Stasiulaitis says the company is watching the situation regarding Huawei and other Chinese suppliers, but it is too early to say how the US sanctions might affect its operations.

"We'll follow all legal requirements and adapt to the circumstances," he told the news site.

Tele2 spokesman Andrius Baranauskas says the sanctions will likely only affect future models, adding that support and warranty coverage for existing Huawei devices will remain in place.

Bite Lietuva also says it is following the situation closely and keeping in touch with Huawei representatives.
