"We have chose to pause further Huawei in our core whilst we engage with the various agencies and governments and Huawei just to finalize the situation, of which I feel Huawei is really open and working hard", Vodafone CEO Nick Read said in a statement. "Huawei has more than 5,700 engineers dedicated to 5G R&D, including over 500 5G experts".

"Our customers. they have trust and confidence in us, and only some political guys are trying to bring a lot of noise to keep pressure (on us)", Yu said. "While European governments are becoming increasingly conscious about Huawei's equipment amid increasing - but as yet unfounded - allegations of espionage, they definitely acknowledge Huawei's reliability and cost-effectiveness".

Huawei on Thursday launched world's first core chip specifically designed for 5G base stations, Huawei TIANGANG. Huawei is the world's largest supplier, and its market share in Europe is estimated at between 35% and 40%.

The move by the mobile giant follows claims that Huawei's hardware could be used by Beijing for spying or to seize control of critical infrastructure.

"I think you're going to see more and more operators doing that".

China's Huawei Technologies Co Ltd [HWT.UL] on Thursday said it could become the world's biggest-selling smartphone vendor this year even without the USA market and as global scrutiny of the firm intensifies.

Vodafone's Chief Executive Nick Read said on Friday after reporting third-quarter results that the debate was playing out at a "too simplistic level", adding that Huawei was an important player in an equipment market dominated by three companies.


He said: "Huawei is focused on supporting Vodafone's 5G network rollouts, of which the core is a small proportion".

Read also said that the government needs to "get the facts on the table and make clear what the plan of action should be".

A Huawei spokesman said: "Vodafone and Huawei are long-term strategic partners that have worked together since 2007".

It looks like, despite recent pushback from the USA and its closest allies against Huawei based on security concerns, telecom operators in the European Union are mostly continuing their collaboration with the Chinese firm at this point.

Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said on Wednesday that Paris was aware of the risks of Huawei's access to mobile networks and said the government would take the necessary steps when needed.
