The United States suspects that it deliberately implements “back doors” in its products.
It is not enough for the US government to completely stop using equipment and equipment from the Chinese manufacturer Huawei this year. He tries to persuade his allies to take the same step. Government sources told the Wall Street Journal.
According to the site, several representatives of the US government met with the same ranking figures from Germany, Japan and Italy. They talked about why countries should avoid Huawei. Americans should even consider financial incentives if their allies decide not to use the brand.
The US government has decided to completely ban the use of Huawei equipment this year. This applies not only to the government, but also to all offices and administrative units. Huawei devices may not even sell stores that are close to military bases.
This is due to the suspicion that the Chinese manufacturer’s hardware contains a “backdoor” through which the Chinese government can spy on the US. This suspicion first appeared in the past administration. During the reign of Donald Trump, it grew, especially in response to the US trade war with China.
Recently, however, concerns have been raised that US military bases are also under threat. Despite their encryption, their communications can travel through commercial networks built using Huawei hardware. It concerns Germany, Japan and Italy. In addition to manufacturing mobile devices, Huawei is also engaged in the construction of mobile networks.
The company is defending itself
The firm has long rejected these allegations and claims it is completely independent of the Chinese government. She even opened a center in the UK where she wants to explore the safety of her devices. Similar center opened this month in Germany. However, the US has not persuaded this effort, and the FBI, CIA and NSA chiefs have consistently issued a recommendation that the government does not use these facilities.
Huawei responded surprisingly to the information published by the Wall Street Journal. If the US really tries to persuade its allies not to use the equipment, the firm believes that Americans are over their jurisdiction. But he believes that “countries have made the right opinion based on their experience with Huawei”.
