United Kingdom concludes using Huawei in 5G is a manageable risk, report says

Huawei Xiliubeipo Village

However the warnings have led multiple nations to investigate or even ban the use of Huawei technology in their 5G networks, including India and Australia, which banned the company's kit a year ago.

The UK intelligence agency has concluded that it can mitigate the alleged risks from using Huawei products in 5G networks, indicating it's not in a position to ban the company, the Financial Times (FT) reported on Sunday, citing two sources familiar with the situation. The United States has said their equipment could be used to spy on Americans.

The UK's mobile and internet providers are already heavily reliant on Huawei for their networks, but the U.S. has argued newer 5G networks are more complex and using the Chinese company's kit poses an unacceptable risk.

On Friday, Trump had reiterated he might be willing to hold off on increasing tariffs to 25 percent from the current 10 percent on March 1 on $200 billion in Chinese goods if Washington and Beijing were close to finalizing an agreement to deal with U.S. allegations of unfair trade and theft of American technology.

A spokesperson for the UK's Digital, Culture, Media and Sport department said the review of 5G security was "ongoing".

In addition to banning officials from spending money on Huawei equipment, the United States government has been trying to convince other countries to follow its lead and shun the company. That includes in the United States market, where Huawei is effectively shut out.

What are the security concerns over Huawei?

Huawei, the Chinese telecom giant, also a world leader in 5G technologies, has been accused by the US of conducting espionage with its high-speed telecommunications systems. Speaking in Munich at a security conference last week, Sir Alex Younger, the MI6 chief, also suggested that an outright ban might not be necessary, although he said the issue was "complicated". The U.S. has accused her of fraud and violating global sanctions against Iran, which she and Huawei have both denied.

While NCSC did not directly comment on the FT report, it reiterated earlier concerns about Huawei's engineering and security capabilities.

The Bloomberg report said the U.S. request for a pledge to keep the yuan's value stable was aimed at neutralizing any effort by Beijing to devalue its currency to counter American tariffs.

It has also offered to build a cyber-security centre in Poland, where authorities have arrested a Chinese Huawei employee along with an ex-Polish security official.
