U.K. Bans Chinaís Huawei From Its 5G Network After Months of Pressure From Trump Admin

    The British government announced early on Tuesday that it was banning Chinese-state telecommunications company Huawei from its high-speed 5G telecommunications network.

    "The new U.S. measures restrict Huawei's ability to produce important products using U.S. technology or software," Media Secretary Oliver Dowden told the House of Commons. "The National Cyber Security Center has reviewed the consequences of the U.S.'s actions. The NCSC has not reported to ministers that they have significantly changed their security assessment of Huawei's presence in the U.K.'s 5G network."

    "Given the uncertainty that this creates around Huawei's supply chain, the U.K. can no longer be confident it will be able to guarantee the security of future Huawei 5G equipment effected by the change in U.S. foreign direct product roles," Dowden said. "To manage this risk, they have now issued new advice on the issue of Huawei in U.K. telecomms networks."

    "So, this morning, the prime minister chaired a meeting of the national security council," Dowden continued. "Attendees at that meeting took full account of the National Cyber Security Center's advice, together with the implications for U.K. industry, and wider geostrategic considerations. The government agrees with the National Cyber Security Center's advice, the best way to secure out networks is for operators to stop using new [inaudible] Huawei equipment to build the U.K.'s future 5G networks."

    "So, to be clear, from the end of this year, telecomms operators must not buy any 5G equipment from Huawei, and once the telecomms security bill is passed, it will be illegal for them to do so," Dowden added.

    "In addition to intense pressure from Washington, the Chinese crackdown in Hong Kong and Beijing's lack of transparency on the origins of the coronavirus have added to concerns in Western capitals about using Chinese technology," The Washington Post reported. "Britain said it will phase out over the next seven years the small amount of Huawei 5G equipment installed in recent months."

    The news came as Secretary of State Mike Pompeo delivered a blow to the Chinese Communist Party at the start of the week, informing the totalitarian nation that its claims in the South China Sea were "completely unlawful."

    In a speech from earlier this year, Attorney General William Barr said that China's rapid advancement in trying to dominate the 5G market was the greatest national security threat that the U.S. faced.
