Chief executives from several USA tech companies met with President Donald Trump on Monday and expressed "strong support" for policies restricting the use of products from Chinese telecom giant Huawei.
The US Department of Commerce and the Treasury Department declined to comment.
The new revelation has rung the bell again because in doing so, Huawei has violated the sanctions imposed by the USA government against doing business with North Korea. Huawei has pleaded not guilty.
Today, the corporate claims it "has no business presence" in North Korea. Details include project name, project status, account, country, internal business units, etc.
Before 2008, North Korea sought multinational companies to build a 3G network in its risky business environment.
That agreement, the newspaper adds, came after then-leader Kim Jong Il secretly visited Huawei's headquarters in China in 2006. For that matter, the company worked with the Korean tech firm Koryolink.

The lack of LGBTQ representation in its 23 films since 2008's Iron Man has frequently been the topic of outrage among queer fans. Honestly, if it hadn't been cut, it wouldn't have served the story or the character, and be just something to check off a box.
There is now no word on whether North Korean officials are anxious about China using Huawei's infrastructure to spy on them. The company's work with Panda reportedly spanned at least eight years, and the arrangement helped obscure Huawei's involvement. Dandong Kehua has not publicly addressed the sanctions. Now, we're learning of leaked documents that tie Huawei to business conducted in another adversarial country: North Korea. North Korea, for instance, was listed as A9 in the project database.
The Czech National Cyber and Information Security Agency concluded previous year that Huawei's software and hardware posed a threat to state security.
The original joint venture agreement gave Orascom exclusive license to operate the mobile network through 2015. It is now managed by Kang Song network which was launched in 2013 and is supported by ZTE Corporation. However, if Huawei had used other Chinese companies to ship equipment to North Korea, as was reported, it might have a case to argue that it has not dealt with a country under USA sanction directly, which is different from the Iran case, where it is accused to have used its own subsidiary.
Background: The U.S. Commerce Department banned exports of U.S. components to Panda International Information Technology in 2014, alleging sanctions violations.
Huawei's 3G equipment used by Koryolink contained some US components that were in violation of the sanctions.
Huawei no longer maintains Koryolink.
Many calls to Panda International went unanswered.
