Johnson on Huawei: Must proceed very carefully

Thursday, 02. July 2020 13:25

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Thursday that the UK needs to think "very carefully" how to proceed regarding the issue of Huawei's involvement in building the country's 5G network.

"I don’t want to see our critical national infrastructure at risk of being in any way controlled by potentially hostile state vendors. So we have to think very carefully about how to proceed now," Johnson told the Evening Standard.

United States sanctions on Huawei are likely to affect the Chinese tech giant's ability to supply the UK’s 5G network, the British government said earlier this week.
