UAE’s telecom du haven’t seen any evidence of security flaws in Huawei’s 5G, says du’s chief technological officer Saleem Albalooshi.
“Huawei is our partner in rolling out our 5G network… From a security perspective.. we have our own labs in the UAE and we visit their labs… we have not seen any evidence that there are security holes specifically in 5G,” Albalooshi told Reuters.
The US has alleged that Huawei’s network equipment poses a security risk and wants allies countries to ban Huawei. While, Huawei has repeatedly denied such allegations, saying its components are safe to use.
When asked about the U.S. threat that it will stop intelligence-sharing with nations that use Huawei equipment, Alabooshi said it is a concern.
“Of course, this is definitely a concern.. but such a thing is the government’s decision. We follow our government’s roads and we are governed by the regulator,” he said.
