Thursday 19 September 2019 | 14:04 CET | News
The Dutch government will take a "country-neutral" approach for 5G, Minister of Justice and Security Ferdinand Grapperhaus said in response to questions from Parliament. Grapperhaus added that the negative opinion received from Dutch intelligence services AIVD and MIVD on the use of Huawei equipment for 5G networks was only one component of the risk analysis made by the Taskforce for Economic Security. The resulting results from the analysis has also been endorsed by the two Dutch intelligence services, Grapperhaus said.
