Allowing Huawei into 5G network is risky - UK

Mr Little said he now had no role in the process.

Officials are wary of the security issues that could arise with Chinese involvement, and the German Interior Ministry said Wednesday that internal discussions were still ongoing on how to proceed.

The RUSI report assessed the ways the Chinese are spying and using so-called "soft power" to achieve their aims in the UK.

The minister responsible for the GCSB, Andrew Little. All these arguments were "short on technical understanding of cyber security and the complexities of 5G architecture". That's what we have the GCSB for in this particular instance.

"Second, telecoms networks must be more resilient".

"It's not a question of trust China". The fears stem partly from China's 2017 National Intelligence Law which states that Chinese organizations must "support, cooperate with, and collaborate in national intelligence work".

He wouldn't be drawn when asked if the situation would be different were the technology provider owned by a country like the UK, US or Australia.

Ren has been forced to come into the limelight as due to the recent criticism from several countries as the company Huawei has come under escalating pressure over espionage concerns from nations, and the US-led campaign in order to persuade other nations to ban its technology as well as 5G network, the next generation network.

Martin said the NCSC has strict controls for how Huawei is deployed, adding it is not used in any sensitive networks, such as those of the government.

Letting Huawei provide equipment for 5G network in the United Kingdom would be "naive" at best and "irresponsible" at worst, RUSI said in its report.

Other operators in Europe, including Britain's BT and France's Orange, have already removed Huawei's equipment or taken steps to limit its future use.

People with knowledge of the matter said the next NCSC report on Huawei's position in Britain will criticise its slow response to issues raised in last year's report and detail tense relations with British officials.

British authorities want to see clear evidence the company is "on the path" to solving the problems, Martin said.
