Major US chipmaker Intel on Wednesday said it had begun selling products to Huawei again as the US begins to loosen restrictions on the Chinese telecommunications giant.

Intel CEO Bob Swan told CNBC on Wednesday that the company had resumed selling certain products to Huawei "within the rules of the law" during the second quarter, and that it was seeking permission to sell "general purpose computing" chips to the company that he believes do not pose a national security risk.

Intel's renewed business with Huawei comes as the US continues to shift its policy regarding the Chinese telecommunications giant, which has been thrust into the center of trade war negotiations between China and the US.
