In other words: let’s acknowledge the fact that all vendors’ equipment contains parts made in China. This is why Huawei advocates the rapid adoption of measures that address the challenges of cyber-security and to put governments’ and consumers’ minds at ease.”US warningThe event came hours after US secretary of state Mike Pompeo released a statement calling for governments to take note of threats outlined in the European Commission’s risk assessment on 5G networks released last month.“People should be able to trust that 5G equipment and software companies will not threaten their security, privacy, IP, or human rights,” Pompeo said. “For nations looking to build out their 5G networks, the European Commission risk assessment named these threats. Now it’s time to keep them safe.”As it currently stands, the EC has outlined broad recommendations related to security of 5G networks with individual countries still responsible for decisions on whether to ban specific vendors.
