The UK’s legislative body confirmed that there is clear collusion between the Chinese Communist Party apparatus and Huawei. Which makes the termination of Huawei from the UK’s 5G infrastructure move forward from 2027 to 2025. This judgment is based on the statements from insiders of the telecom industry, experts of cyber security, and mostly from the company’s critics. But Huawei states that it is just a built-in opinion but not the reality.
They already attended a parliament committee in July, and the committee terminated the production of Huawei equipment. They ordered that the termination must be done before the end of the year. Under Donald Trump’s pressure, they also said that all the hardware equipment must be stripped from the UK’s telecommunication industry by 2027.
The lawmakers of the UK declared that “Should pressure from allies for a speedier removal continue or should China’s threats and global position change so significantly to warrant it, the Government should consider whether a removal by 2025 is feasible and economically viable, Clearly these restrictions will delay the 5G rollout and economically damage the UK and mobile network operators. The Government should take necessary steps to minimise the delay and economic damage and consider providing compensation to operators if the 2027 deadline is moved forward.”
When the source spoke to the Huawei spokesperson about this, he said that “This report lacks credibility, as it is built on opinion rather than fact. We’re sure people will see through these groundless accusations of collusion and remember instead what Huawei has delivered for Britain over the past 20 years.”
After the recent allegations stating that the company is in collusion with the Chinese communist party apparatus, they moved from 2027 to 2025. The findings include that Huawei received the amount of $75 billion from the Chinese Government for its growth. For this, the UK Conservative MP Previously tweeted, “I repeat concerns re engaging with a foreign tech co that’s obliged to embed surveillance tools by its host state. The internet is splitting – we are moving to a bi-polar world. We’ll have fewer friends if we ally ourselves to the wrong side of tech/ national security axis.”
Now Tobias Ellwood, chairman of the defense committee, stated that “The West must urgently unite to advance a counterweight to China’s tech dominance. We must not surrender our national security for the sake of short-term technological development.”
Whatever the situation is, this ban on Huawei equipment and termination costs $2.6 billion for the UK government. This whole process will delay the implementation of 5G technology in the UK.
