Licenses allowing US companies to sell equipment to Huawei "will be forthcoming very shortly,"  Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross told Bloomberg. A deal regarding the controversial Chinese company is apparently on track to be signed this month.

The government has received 260 license requests, he told the business outlet on Sunday. "That's a lot of applications -- it's frankly more than we would've thought," Ross said in the interview, noting that most will likely be approved.

Neither the Commerce Department nor Huawei immediately responded to requests for comment.
