On July 14, local time, the British government made a decision to prohibit mobile operators from purchasing Huawei 5G equipment from 2021, and before 2027 Eliminate Huawei from the UK’s 5G supply equipment.
According to the BBC Newsletter, the Johnson government held a National Security Council meeting on the morning of the 14th to discuss Huawei issues. The Minister of Culture Oliver Doden subsequently confirmed to the House of Commons.
Dowden said it was not an easy decision, but it was a correct decision for the British telecommunications network, national security and economics. At the same time, he admits that this move will lead to the delay of the introduction of 5G in the UK by one year.
In response, Huawei British spokesman Edward Brewster issued a statement in response. The response stated:
This decision is disappointing and is bad news for all mobile phone users in the UK. This may cause the UK to fall into the slow lane of digital development, increase consumer spending on communications, and deepen the digital divide. This move will not only’enhance’, but will reduce the level of development in the UK. We urge the government to reconsider this decision. We are confident that the new US regulatory measures will not affect the resilience and safety of the products we provide to the UK.
Unfortunately, Huawei’s future development in the UK is politicized. This move stems from US trade policy, not security issues. Over the past 20 years, Huawei has focused on building better network connections in the UK. As a responsible enterprise, we will continue to support our customers as always.
We will carefully examine the impact of today’s announcement on our future UK business and communicate with the UK government to clarify how we will continue to help the UK build better network connections.
