Defense Secretary Ben Wallace said Britain would make a decision soon on whether to allow Huawei devices to be used in its 5G networks but China must play by the rules if it has access to Western markets.
Asked on Wednesday when a UK decision on Huawei Wallace would be taken, he said, “The government will come into its position soon. We will make a decision very soon.”
“We will not allow anything to compromise our sensitive UK networks, but our technical advice is that there are places we can go to mitigate any security risks,” he added.
“It was not so long ago that the United Kingdom and other countries publicly called on China for some of its online activities.” This is more than technical – this is about behavior as well, “he told reporters. And if we’re going to allow countries to access our markets, I think we should all expect a code of conduct that is fair game. “/Investing.com
