US threatens Germany against using Huawei 5G tech

US-German intel sharing at risk over Huawei spat | Article

Last week, Huawei sued the us government for banning federal agencies from purchasing Huawei equipment - a restriction in the 2019 National Defense Authorization Act.

The move would shake up Germany's security sector, which relies on intelligence from the NSA, CIA, and other American agencies.

US officials declined to say whether other countries have received or would receive similar warnings.

The central concern appears to be that if Huawei networking gear is used in German 5G networks, then they will no longer be secure against Chinese intrusion.

Uncle Sam has reportedly threatened Germany with a reduction in intelligence sharing if it allows Huawei equipment to be installed on its 5G networks. Although Huawei has repeatedly denied been used by by Chinese Government, and even challenged the United States govt to publicly release evidence backing up its claims, all that has fallen on deaf ears as the U.S. government has asked its allies to cut their relationships with Huawei. Pence accused Huawei to be connected with Chinese intelligence and thus, being capable of becoming a potential threat to the national security.

The US on Monday issued a warning that it will limit the intelligence it shares with countries that are using "untrusted" technology vendors, according to officials.

"Because 5G networks are largely software-defined, updates pushed to the network by the manufacturer can radically change how they operate", said Garrett Marquis, NSC spokesman.

Germany's Ministry of Economics confirmed it had received a letter from the USA and that it would soon respond. "There will be a quick reply".

The German Economy Ministry confirmed that the letter had been received.

While Australia, New Zealand and Japan all issued policies previous year to restrict the involvement of Chinese firms in building 5G networks, European countries have not followed suit.

Grenell said in his letter that Chinese companies, under Chinese law, can be required to support China's security agencies and that inspections of Huawei software could not ensure there were no vulnerabilities, the newspaper said.

Along with worries about network security, United States prosecutors have charged Huawei and its chief financial officer, Meng Wanzhou, over alleged Iran sanctions violations, and Beijing and Washington are trying to settle a tariff war affecting a wide range of goods.

Essentially, the lawsuit is daring US intelligence services to put up or shut up.
