America’s close partner Japan said that it would not buy 5G network and Huawei mobiles for its army forces and government workplaces. BT, the telecom firm of UK, has removed the Huawei network from giving technology for its 5G network.
With mounting pressure and speculations, New Zealand and Australia has joined the list of countries that has banned the tech giant. On Tuesday, risk consultancy Eurasia group, geo-technology director, Kevin Allison said that it was part of a concerted strategy to pressure its western countries, allies and similar partners from not including the Chinese 5G equipment in its networks of next generation from the US.
The high speed technology is a ”geopolitically consequential network upgrade” which shows modern levels of invention for a handful of sectors like artificial intelligence, smart cities, driverless vehicles and advanced factories, said Allison. He also added that these technologies were going to set the tone for the rest of the 21st century showing great competition is places like military strength and faster surge in economics. He further added that the conflict between US and China is one of the main reasons for the steps taken by it towards Huawei.
The ambassadors of Canada and US were called by China to criticize them about Meng’s treatment.
Huawei later addressed its suppliers by saying that it has strictly complied with all the regulations and laws in their global business operations and that they are not aware of any wrongdoing.
