USA orders Germany to dump Huawei

Currently, the United States plans to continue sharing its intelligence with Germany, but officials reportedly plan to decrease the extent of access if Huawei equipment is in use in the future.

Huawei, the Chinese company that makes the tower technology, is shunned by the major U.S. wireless carriers (including AT&T, which owns CNN parent company WarnerMedia) and the federal government over national security concerns.

The US believes that allowing the Chinese company Huawei to construct and maintain 5G networks will give the Chinese government a backdoor into communications surveillance.

The warning was outlined in a letter from US Ambassador to Germany Richard A. Grenell, according to a report from the WSJ.

Despite US claims to the contrary, Germany has insisted that there is no evidence Huawei has or will use its gear to engage in espionage.

Reportedly, Huawei has no plans to sue the Australian government, for now.

In Germany, the U.S. Embassy spokesman told Kakissis that the circumstances raise questions about the confidentiality of sensitive communications, implying information carried over Huawei's equipment could be at risk of being piped to Chinese intelligence agencies. Further, the USA likely needs its allies to support the pushback against Huawei in order for the isolation tactic to have any meaningful effect.

The Trump administration fired its latest salvo on Friday, The Wall Street Journal reported today, warning Germany of consequences if it doesn't ban China's Huawei Technologies, the world's largest telecom-equipment maker, from the build-out of its 5G network, the next generation of mobile infrastructure.

Tensions have also run high over the detention of Huawei chief financial officer Meng Wanzhou, who is facing possible extradition to the US on allegations she committed financial fraud in the course of allegedly violating worldwide sanctions on Iran.
