Another frustrated move by the US, FCC planning to ban Huawei

Published

on


The US is taking continues measures to freeze Huawei’s business on the global market but even its allies countries have refused to the US’s request to ban Huawei.

In a fresh development of this story, the US telecom regulator is planning to announce Huawei and another Chinese telecom gear provider as national security risks, proving this decision as another frustrating step by the US government.

At a meeting set for November 19, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) said it plans to vote to ask carriers how much it would cost to remove and replace Huawei and ZTE from existing networks and to establish a reimbursement program to offset the costs of removing the equipment, reported Reuters.

“When it comes to 5G and America’s security, we can’t afford to take a risk and hope for the best,” FCC Chairman Ajit Pai said in a statement.

“As the United States upgrades its networks to the next generation of wireless technologies – 5G – we cannot ignore the risk that the Chinese government will seek to exploit network vulnerabilities in order to engage in espionage, insert malware and viruses, and otherwise compromise our critical communications networks.”

Pai first proposed in March 2018 to ban companies that posed a national security risk but did not name any specific. FCC’s top officers arguably believe that the Chinese government and military working in collaboration with such companies.

This latest decision by FCC completely reflects the US government’s will to add to ban Huawei from serving the US companies.

“In 30 years of business, Huawei has never had a major security-related incident in the 170 countries where we operate,” said a Huawei spokesman in Shenzhen, China.

“Today’s proposal, released by the FCC Chairman, only impacts the broadband providers in the most unserved or underserved rural areas of the United States,” the spokesman said. “Such action will further widen the digital divide; slowing the pace of economic development without further securing the Nation’s telecommunications networks.”

Back in May, the US Commerce Department imposed a trade ban on Huawei, alleging of being a national security threat and the company is under control of Chinese law. These allegations are repeatedly denied by the Chinese tech giant.

Under the trade blacklisting, Huawei cannot do business with US firms such as prohibiting the use of Google Mobile services for its smartphones, buying chips and more.

Besides the trade ban, the Trump government creating pressure on its allies countries to ban Huawei from participating in 5G network development, of which they’ve refused to bar Huawei.

China’s foreign ministry statement:

“Facts have already fully proved that this is an incident of political persecution against Chinese citizens, with the purpose of suppressing China’s high-tech enterprises. The accusation of Ms. Meng Wanzhou’s so-called “fraud” is purely fabricated. The actions of the United States and Canada are typical arbitrary detentions.” said China’s Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying.
