The US faces another setback on the Huawei issue

The US faces another setback on the Huawei issue

Posted on Jan 31, 2020

After the UK, the European Union also rejected US pressure to ban sanctions on Huawei's 5G networks.

The European Commission has issued a code of conduct for the introduction of 5G in the region, endorsing the adoption of a risk prevention strategy, which means Huawei in the EU as well. Not being banned.

On the contrary, countries in the European Union have been asked to implement a package of measures and contacts regarding the Five G Toolbox, announced in October last year.

In a statement issued by the European Commission, the toolbox states that member states jointly identify risks and take security measures in this regard.

According to the statement, Member States will have to agree to strengthen security requirements, access to suppliers' risk profiles to limit the role of suppliers who are considered to be highly risky and to keep them away from important and sensitive assets. Ensure strategies that ensure the diversity of companies.

The move is another setback for the Trump administration as the British government announced yesterday that it would not ban 'high risk' companies for supplying five G networks.

Under the UK, it will ban such companies from excluding sensitive areas and strategic locations of Five G networks.

It is understood that pressure from the US on the global stage is to shut its doors completely for the Chinese company and the US administration claims that the involvement of Huawei in the delivery of the most important infrastructure will be a security risk.

Such risks can be controlled together, the European Commission says.

The countries involved in the EU are responsible for specific security measures in this regard, and individually some of these countries may remove Huawei from the process, but the EU appears to be against such measures.

According to the European Commission, collective work on the toolbox will demonstrate a strong commitment to the shared response to the security challenges of 5 G networks, which is essential for successful and credible thinking on EU fuzzy security.

The next deadline for the EU 5G toolbox is April 2020, and the Commission expects the proposed measures by Member States to be implemented by then, while a joint implementation report will be released sometime this year.

It is thought that the US had stopped Huawei from introducing 5 G networks on its territory and expressed security concerns that the company was being controlled by the Chinese government, which Huawei constantly denied.

The US government believes that Huawei's infrastructure will provide opportunities for the Chinese government to carry out espionage and destruction, and that is why Huawei telecommunications equipment has been banned in the US since 2012, while Australia and New Zealand also have Huawei's 5G mobile. Supplying network devices is banned.

But US actions regarding Huawei intensified in 2018 when the Trump administration banned companies like AT&T and others from dealing with Huawei phones, while Huawei was banned by the US president in May last year.
