The United States has declared to take action against any country that uses China to set up its communications infrastructure, threatening any country dealing with China in this regard by isolating sensitive intelligence data.
According to TOI, the decision came from Foreign Minister Mike Pompeo after meeting with his German counterpart who stood in the ranks of Britain and France to stop the Huawei ban.
Pompeo said in his European tour five days ago that the statements of citizens and members of national security will not be allowed to pass through networks he does not trust in reference to Huawei.
Pompeo urged the United Kingdom not to support Huawei to build its fifth generation networks because this would be a means of Chinese espionage.
Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said in response to remarks made by US Vice President Mike Pence in Canada on Huawei that the United States has not yet proven that Huawei’s devices pose a security threat.
Geng Shuang said he hoped the United States would stop these actions, which are not entirely in line with its status as a big country.
