Using Huawei 5G equipment would be act of madness for UK: US officials

As per a report from the Guardian Newspaper, officials from the U.S. government have provided the British government with additional newer evidence concerning the risks of involving Huawei in developing its future 5G mobile networks.

Ahead of Britain’s decision to include Huawei in developing its 5G networks, officials from both countries exchanged views on whether to deploy Huawei’s technology.

Washington is trying to persuade allied nations to not use Huawei’s equipment since it carries security risks.

“Senior U.S. officials told a group of reporters that using Huawei technology for 5G in the UK would be ‘an act of madness’ shortly after presenting a dossier of new evidence to ministers,” said the Guardian’s defense and security editor said on Twitter.
