UK's Huawei fears may take five years to address

Chancellor Angela Merkel has said Germany needs guarantees that Huawei would not hand data to the Chinese state before it can take part in building fifth-generation networks.

A number of European nations, including the United Kingdom and Germany, have expressed concern about the use of Huawei equipment in their telecoms infrastructure, however earlier this week, France rejected proposals that would increase checks.

Huawei, the world's biggest telecoms equipment maker, is facing global scrutiny over its ties with the Chinese government and allegations that Beijing could use its technology for spying, which Huawei denies.

"We have no intention of adopting any such initiatives", Italy's industry ministry reportedly said.

Huawei could still be excluded from 5G networks if these guidelines become very strict. "Extra stigma could change the situation out in the countries on this major decision".

It is believed that the USA has been warning Canada about the alleged dangers of using Huawei equipment.

"We're raising it at the highest diplomatic levels", Rob Strayer of the State Department said Wednesday during an event at the Center for Strategic and International Studies. We choose to ensure security'.

The body is overseen by United Kingdom security officials, including ones from spy agency GCHQ.

Multiple sources speaking with Politico have confirmed that President Trump is ready to issue an executive order that will place a ban on Chinese hardware being using for upgrades of cellular networks. "We need to figure out how to do this now".

Huawei equipment is already in use in Canada in existing networks but reports say this country may follow suit in not allowing them to participate in development of the 5G net. Supposedly, President Trump will be signing an executive order as early as next week.
