United Kingdom throws drowning Huawei a European lifeline

UK security chiefs: Huawei risk in 5G can be contained

A report by the Financial Times cites "two people familiar with the conclusion" of analysis into the perceived threat of Huawei. Chinese companies are obliged to co-operate with state intelligence agencies, prompting concerns that Huawei has built "mandatory backdoors" into its products that could facilitate espionage and interference.

According to the BBC, the United Kingdom government is set to decide in March or April whether United Kingdom networks such as Three, Vodafone, and EE, will be permitted to use Huawei technologies in the future.

China's government accused Washington on Monday of trying to block its industrial development after Vice President Mike Pence said tech giant Huawei and other telecom equipment suppliers are a security threat.

Huawei has faced a storm of controversy in recent months, with the United States suggesting its telecoms kit could be used by China to spy on western countries.

Scott Morrison warns of 'weaker borders' after medivac bill is passed
Opposition Immigration spokesman Shayne Neumann said the PM has become a "walking, talking billboard" for the boat trade. Earlier, Opposition Leader Bill Shorten sought to send his own message to would- be asylum seekers.

"Our review of the right policy approach to 5G security and resilience is still ongoing".

Ericsson AB chief executive officer Borje Ekholm pushed back on notions that restrictions on Chinese competitor Huawei Technologies would deprive European operators of the only vendor capable of delivering equipment for next-generation wireless networks and risk delaying 5G development on the continent. Huawei has always denied it is in collusion with its government.

European officials, including a vice-president of the European Union, have expressed concern about Chinese regulations issued past year that require companies to co-operate with intelligence agencies.

Hannigan argued that British security officials had never found evidence of Huawei involvement in Chinese state-sponsored cyberespionage, and that political fashion or trade wars should not eclipse rational assessment of risk. In turn, government security agencies of a communist country with global ambitions would prize such information. The National Cyber Security Centre said this summer that it had concerns about the engineering and security of Huawei's networks.
