Former US Homeland Security chief warns UK about Huawei 5G access

Friday 12 July 2019 | 11:06 CET | News

A former US Secretary of Homeland Security has warned that intelligence sharing between the UK and US will be harmed if the UK Government allows Huawei to build the 5G network, reports The Telegraph.

Speaking in London, Governor Tom Ridge said that China and the western world were involved in a 'digital war' and called on the new UK Prime Minister to review a decision to allow Huawei access to this critical national infrastructure. He questioned the 'opaque nature' of the relationship between the Chinese Ministry of State Security ad Huawei and warned that the UK would be giving China 'a front door' into the telecoms network.
