United Kingdom declines to support Huawei’s entire network ban

"I think two things he said was no evidence of malicious use and that they think they can manage Huawei technology in a network in a way that doesn't compromise security".

The results of a government review of British telecoms infrastructure is expected later in the year and will include recommendations on managing security risks, including in future 5G networks.

The US campaign to have its allies exclude the Chinese telecom giant Huawei from the development of 5G mobile phone networks on "national security" grounds appears to have suffered a significant blow.

No evidence has been produced publicly and the firm has repeatedly denied the claims, but the allegations have led several Western countries to restrict Huawei's access to their markets.

Large amounts of money and resources are at stake as Huawei is deeply involved in European telecoms networks.

Huawei, though it is one of China's marquee worldwide companies, emphasizes it is not a state-controlled enterprise and says it would never spy on behalf of Beijing or anyone else.

Huawei is now under intense scrutiny amid fears its technology could be used for spying by Chinese authorities.

Martin said: "Everything is on the table".

German officials have told The Wall Street Journal that the country has made a "preliminary decision" to allow Huawei to bid on contracts for 5G networking, despite growing calls from the United States to cease doing business with the company.

Like New Zealand, Britain has yet to make a final decision on whether Huawei can play a role in its telecommunications networks.

The Commons science and technology committee had asked them for reassurances about the extent Chinese laws could compel its firms to help intelligence work, The Times reported.

"Some politicians have turned either 5G or cyber security into political or ideological discussions, which I believe are not sustainable".

Chennai: Chinese consumer electronics major Huawei said it has not received any notification from government departments over issues surrounding security. We have set out the improvements we expect the company to make, an NCSC spokeswoman said on Monday. "The British approach, if it proves to be one of managed risk, will give Canada breathing space to resist the US campaign and develop a similar strategy".

Other operators in Europe, including Britain's BT and France's Orange, have already removed Huawei's equipment or taken steps to limit its future use.

"Other nations can make the argument that if the British are confident of mitigation against national security threats then they can reassure their public and the United States administration that they are acting in a prudent manner in continuing to allow their communications service providers to use Chinese components as long as they take the kinds of precautions recommended by the British", the person said.

"We will monitor and report on progress and we will not declare the problems are on the path to being solved unless and until there is clear evidence that this is the case", he said.

The company mentioned that it will invest $2 billion over five years in improving software engineering capabilities including cyber security.

But the author of the RUSI report, Charles Parton, a former diplomat with more than 20 years service in China, Hong Kong and Taiwan, said: "Allowing Huawei's participation is at best naive, at worst irresponsible".
