USA urges allies to avoid Huawei

  • US presses allies to ditch Huawei citing cybersecurity risks from China – report

The US government has sought to press its allies to stop using equipment developed by Huawei, the Chinese telecom company with links to the country's military, amid spying fears.

Now it seems that U.S. officials are escalating the dispute by talking to their government counterparts and telecom executives in friendly countries where Huawei equipment is already in wide use about what they see as cybersecurity risks. Currently, the US government has spoken with Italy, Japan, and Germany, and may be even offering financial incentives like subsidies if those governments also choose to stop using Huawei products. Some of those familiar with the conversations added that the United States would be willing to boost aid for advanced telecoms equipment if a nation did decide to shun the Chinese company.

Huawei has long been labeled a security risk by US lawmakers because of alleged links to the Chinese government, in part because it was founded by former military engineer Ren Zhengfei (任正非).

"This plays into how it's a time to be cautious on the U.S". Earlier this year, lawmakers introduced the Defending U.S. Government Communications Act, which would ban government agencies from using equipment from ZTE and Huawei.


Asked for comment on the Journal report, Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesman Geng Shuang (耿爽) yesterday said that China hoped the relevant nations could provide a fair environment for its companies, Reuters reported.

The United States have been pretty vocal when it comes to voicing dissatisfaction with Huawei and the company's idea of becoming a world leader in 5G tech.

Officials working for President Donald Trump's administration have briefed key allies about the national security concerns posed by Huawei, which was founded by a former People's Liberation Army major.

According to the report, the USA government is now requesting from its allies that they stop using Huawei products as well. So many companies and consumers choose HUAWEI because they have complete confidence and appreciate the quality HUAWEI delivers. "If a government's behaviour extends beyond its jurisdiction, such activity should not be encouraged".
