China Threat to Telecoms Cited in EU Parliament Draft Resolution
The parliament of the European Union is preparing a resolution on the potential risks of using telecommunications technology from Chinese tech firms such as Huawei for the establishment of 5G networks across Europe.
A draft of the resolution refers to claims by the US government that products by Huawei cannot be trusted. The draft states that the EU’s representative body “expresses deep concern about the recent allegations that 5G equipment developed by Chinese companies may have embedded backdoors that would allow manufacturers and authorities to have unauthorized access to private and personal data and telecommunications from the EU.”
The US recently warned Germany that it would be less willing to share intelligence with German security agencies if the country does not ban Huawei products from its 5G networks.
