United Kingdom set to shrink Huawei's involvement in 5G network

UK plans cut in Huawei's 5G network involvement- newspaper report

Such is the controversy over the decision, Downing Street isn't convinced the plan would pass a vote in the House of Commons, despite the government having an 80 seat majority.

The move "simply don't make sense", Zhang said in a statement. British telecoms firms now need clear guidance so we can build an advanced comms future without high risk, hi-tech from authoritarian states. Yesterday, following Conservative MP Richard Drax 's questions to urge Johnson to copy France's review of defence supply chains because of concerns China is buying up companies at risk of going bust during the pandemic, Johnson told the Commons: "Drax is absolutely right to be concerned about investment, to be concerned about the buying up of United Kingdom technology by countries that. may have ulterior motives". "We can not put our important information at risk of being accessed by the Chinese Communist Party (.) Huawei is really operating on behalf of the Chinese Communist Party "he warned". There should be no place for it in the UK. Huawei did not comment so far on the development.

"Huawei in our 5G network is bad for data privacy, bad for our security, bad for human rights: glad the government may now be thinking, 'no way Huawei".

Earlier on Friday, The Times reported that Johnson has instructed civil servants to make plans to end Britain's reliance on China for vital medical supplies and other strategic imports.

The newspaper reported that two working groups had been created under the umbrella of Project Defend.

Beijing has been tackling mounting worldwide criticism over its handling of the coronavirus outbreak, which began in China before spreading to the rest of the world. Beijing denies allegations from world governments that it was not transparent about the outbreak.

In recent months, several European operators such as Telefónica or Vodafone have announced that will gradually withdraw the presence of Huawei equipment from the critical cores of 5G networks, in order to have several providers of that infrastructure.

These measures would please the USA government, as Trump administration has banned the use of Huawei's technology through an executive order that stops the United States companies from purchasing telecommunications equipment that could endanger national security.

Britain decided in January to allow Huawei into what the government said were non-sensitive parts of the network and limit its involvement at 35 per cent.
