The whole world is watching at the battles of the USA and China in different aspects. Earlier we wrote how the trade war between these two countries influenced the cryptocurrency market, but now let us talk about Huawei – the reason for new fights.
Telecom companies have been struggling with Huawei’s security problems for months. It resulted in the US locking the firm out of American telecom networks. Obviously, the USA consider Huawei as a threat to their national security, however, the question is does the company or the country – China – bring more threat to the USA? The question is pretty political, as well as the situation itself. The majority of the US experts think that Huawei’s exposure to the Chinese government as dangerous in itself, and as time goes by, it becomes harder to ignore it.
Houlin Zhao, secretary-general of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) in the UN, gave an interview to the reporters on Friday in Geneva. He expressed his opinion stating:
“If you find anything wrong, then you can charge [Huawei] and accuse them. But if we don’t have anything then to put them on the blacklist – I think this is not fair.”
At the same time, US officials stay their foot on the ground, at the latest cybersecurity forum, the chief of DHS’s cybersecurity and infrastructure, Chris Krebs, said:
“Our focus is not on the country of origin, or the company, but it’s about what is the rule of law under which that product is potentially subject to.”
To sum up, these two countries are not planning to give up their ideas, however, they ought to understand that the tech world is not a place for political fights.
