HPSCI Republicans statement on Britain's decision to allow Huawei to help build its 5G network
All nine Republican members of the House Intelligence Committee today issued the following statement:
"Britain’s decision to allow Huawei to help build its 5G network is deeply concerning. China is seeking to dominate global telecommunication infrastructure for strategic reasons, not commercial ones—a fact that the Chinese government has made plain. Huawei is not simply a telecommunications company based in China. It is subject to the control of the Chinese government, one of the world’s most aggressive surveillance states. Huawei has benefited from intellectual property theft, unfair commercial practices, and many other forms of corruption.
We urge our allies, as well as the United States government itself, to take stronger measures to inoculate our economies and information from the well-documented, continuing malfeasance of Huawei and similar enterprises that serve the interests of Beijing."
