The European Union in a report on Wednesday warned that the next generation telecom networks face a range of cyber threats, including from hostile countries.
However, the report didn’t name specific countries. It only briefly mentioned Huawei as one of the main suppliers of 5G equipment, alongside Finland’s Nokia and Sweden’s Ericsson.
In response, Huawei welcomed the European Union statement on 5G mobile networks, saying it was ready to work with its partners to ensure they are secure, reported Reuters.
“This exercise is an important step towards developing a common approach to cybersecurity and delivering safe networks for the 5G era,” a Huawei spokesman said.
“We are pleased to note that the EU delivered on its commitment to take an evidence-based approach, thoroughly analyzing risks rather than targeting specific countries or actors.”
