Monday was filled with international tension as China publicly accused the US of blocking their technology advancements by alleging that their products may impose a security threat. While attempting to get other countries onboard with the ban, British media seemingly negated the US’ claims, informing that China’s 5G technology can actually limit security risks.
NBC writes, “The U.S. argues that Beijing might use Chinese tech companies to gather intelligence about foreign countries. The Trump administration has been putting pressure on allies to shun networks supplied by Huawei Technologies, threatening the company’s access to markets for next-generation wireless gear.”
Huawei Technologies denies any affiliation with spies while holding their ground and refusing to release confidential information about foreign clients.
Chinese foreign ministry, Geng Shuang, expressed his discontent with the US government attempting to“fabricate an excuse for suppressing the legitimate development”. He continued to address that what the country is doing by incorporating “political means” to affect the economy is “hypocritical, immoral and unfair bullying.”
