The Britain government has finally removed China’s Huawei telecoms giant from its 5G network, following months of pressure from the United States.
The British ban takes immediate effects after the Beijing retaliation firm was warned, which was handed US President Donald Trump a victory.
“The reported #UK action reflects a growing international consensus that #Huawei and other untrusted vendors pose a threat to national security, as they remain beholden to the Chinese Communist Party,” White House National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien said on Twitter.
“We look forward to working with the UK, as well as our many other partners and allies, to spur innovation, promote vendor diversity in the #5G supply chain, and ensure 5G security free from dangerous manipulations.”
Amid rising tensions with China, Trump has pushed allies to ban Huawei from their telecommunications networks on the grounds that it poses a national security risk.
Britain’s Prime Minister Boris Johnson initially resisted, allowing Huawei to roll out a new high-speed network in Britain in January.
The Britain ban on Hawaii has assuredly blocked their access to US chips for the 5G networks, which have brought a change in London.
