Huawei is ready to sign no-spy agreements with governments
It’s no secret that USA’s defense department is having some issues with the Chinese telecommunication giant, Huawei. Clearly, the country is having a trust issue with the Chinese-based company’s 5G infrastructure, and as a result of which a ban was imposed on Huawei . Worse, the US is also approaching other countries especially its allies to completely ban Huawei technologies.
Huawei, on the other side, rubbished all the allegations and called the ban ‘Unconstitutional.’ The damage, however, is already done, and the Chinese telecommunication giant desperately wants to revive its image, and in order for this to happen, the company wants to sign no-spy agreements with governments.
“We are willing to sign no-spy agreements with governments, including the UK government, to commit ourselves to making our equipment meet the no-spy, no-backdoors standard”, said Liang Hua, Huawei chairman.
The UK, however, didn’t impose a complete ban on Huawei but the country said that it has strict controls for how Huawei’s equipment is deployed.
A British government spokesman said, “The security and resilience of the UK’s telecoms networks are of paramount importance, and we have strict controls for how Huawei equipment is currently deployed in the UK.”
