Italian PM denies Trump's 5G claim

Thursday 5 December 2019 | 11:16 CET | News
Italian prime minister Giuseppe Conte has denied a claim by US President Donald Trump that Italy has decided not to allow China's Huawei to develop its 5G network infrastructure. At the recent NATO summit in London, the US president said Huawei's involvement in 5G posed a "danger for security", adding that Italy was among several countries set to drop the idea of developing their 5G networks with Huawei. "I have spoken to Italy and it seems that they won't proceed with this," said Trump according to the Ansa news agency.
