China may launch an antitrust investigation against the American corporation Google. It is reported by Reuters with reference to its sources.

According to the agency, this proposal was made by the Chinese company Huawei Technologies. The initiative has already been submitted for consideration to the Antimonopoly Committee of the State Council of the People's Republic of China.

It is believed that the reason was the leading position of Google in the Chinese market. The corporation is crushing the competition with its Android operating system.

According to the interlocutors of the agency, the decision to start an investigation may be made as early as October. It depends on the development of relations between China and the United States.

Earlier, US President Donald Trump said that the authorities would prohibit federal agencies from concluding contracts with American companies that localize production in China.
