On Tuesday, British prime minister Theresa May has given clearance that Huawei can take part in Britain’s 5G network development and shown its trust to the Chinese telecom giant.
According to a report from The Telegraph, On Tuesday, The National Security Council (NSC), chaired by the prime minister has agreed to allow Huawei limited access to building “non-core” infrastructure such as antennas.
To oppose this, a number of council members, including the Home Secretary, Foreign Secretary, Defense secretary, international Trade Secretary, and International Development Secretary raised concerns about the decision.
This decision from the UK came after US intelligence reported some serious issue in Huawei’s working terminology and allegations that the firm is working under the Chinese government.
Huawei has always denied being controlled by the Chinese government or any other related agency, or that its work poses any risks of spying and sabotage.
