China attacks UK for Huawei ban!
On Tuesday, July 14, 2020, the Digital Secretary of the United Kingdom, declared that the telecom networks of the United Kingdom, are not going to have permission to buy the new Huawei 5G kit, as of December 31, 2020. The Digital Secretary of the United Kingdom also declared that by the year 2027, all mobile networks need to strip out Huawei equipment that they have.
Because of the UK Huawei ban, China has now started to attack the UK. Liu Xiaoming, China’s ambassador to the United Kingdom stated:
“The way you treat Huawei will be followed very closely by other Chinese businesses.”
The decision was “not only disappointing, it’s disheartening”.
And the attack by the Chinese on the United Kingdom got worse, when:
Ms. Hua, of the Chinese foreign ministry warned:
“The UK side has used groundless risks as an excuse to co-operate with the United States… violating the relevant commitments made by the UK. Any decisions and actions must come at a cost.”
The United States of America has said Huawei is a gateway that is being used by China, to spy on countries and also to attack the countries which make use of Huawei equipment.
Jim Banks Tweets:
“Huawei is a #CCP espionage tool that makes it impossible to safely trade intel. My bill H.R.5661, would ban intel sharing w/ countries that use Huawei. Hope the U.K. secures our 5 Eyes relationship & blocks Huawei from its 5G network.”
America has asked members of the Five Eyes alliance – which is inclusive of Australia, United Kingdom, New Zealand and Canada, to not use the Huawei kit.
Diana Murphy Tweets:
“Should Canada join the so-called Five Eyes intelligence consortium and ban Huawei? They are the only holdouts.”
How has China reacted to the UK Huawei ban?
The Global Times, a Chinese news organization states:
“It’s necessary for China to retaliate against the UK, otherwise wouldn’t we be too easy to bully? Such retaliation should be public and painful for the UK.”
