Beijing censures US ban on Chinese firms as 'abuse of state power'

Beijing censures US ban on Chinese firms as 'abuse of state power'

When it comes to security, the parliamentary committee tasked to evaluate the vendors has not found evidence to suggest that Huawei has comprised the security in its current business in India, according to Reuters' sources.

Recently, telecommunications minister Ravi Shankar Prasad told parliament that the ministry had received six proposals for 5G trials, including from Huawei.

Early this week, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that if a country adopts Huawei technology, the USA "won " t be able to share" any information with them.

In May, the Commerce Department moved to blacklist Huawei, cutting it off from US suppliers and limiting American telecoms' access to buying equipment from the Shenzhen-based company.

"Moving forward, we will do everything we can to shake off outside distractions, improve management, and make progress towards our strategic goals", Huawei's rotating chairman Guo Ping stated earlier.

An American Congressman has, however, alleged that China is "blackmailing" India and several other countries into using Huawei.

The Chinese government has threatened to take retaliatory action if India's government bars Huawei from 5G networks on security grounds. During the meeting, Beijing also allegedly said that it hoped India would make its own "independent and objective decision".

The Department of Telecommunications hasn't made up its mind about including Huawei in the trails - and it now looks like China is forcing the Indian government's hand. But firms including Infosys, TCS, Dr Reddy's Laboratories Reliance Industries and Mahindra & Mahindra have a foothold there in manufacturing, healthcare, financial services and outsourcing. "Globally, the Chinese companies, including Huawei, are facing allegations that they "underbid" projects, and position themselves and their establishment back home to snoop and enable them to shut remotely, if required be", he wrote.

Huawei has repeatedly denied it is controlled by the Chinese government, military or intelligence services.

Currently, a group of senior officials, led by the principal scientific adviser K Vijay Raghavan, is looking into whether Huawei should be allowed to participate in 5G trials in India.

The Indian government is yet to shortlist companies and telecom equipment manufacturers it plans to invite for 5G trials.
