Senators warn Canada against deal with Huawei

A pair of United States senators urged Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau not to incorporate Chinese company ​Huawei into its 5G network development as it could have national security implications for Canada, the US and other allies.

Senate intelligence Vie Chairman Mark Warner and Senator Marco Rubio, a member of the intelligence panel, sent a letter to Trudeau warning him that Huawei's participation in 5G development could seriously hurt ties between the US and Canada carriers and damage efforts to rapidly build 5G upgrade of the current mobile internet service, the Hill reported.

“We write with grave concerns about the possibility that Canada might include Huawei Technologies or any other Chinese state-directed telecommunications company in its fifth-generation (5G) telecommunications network infrastructure,” the senators wrote. “There is ample evidence to suggest that no major Chinese company is independent of the Chinese government and Communist Party — and Huawei, which China’s government and military tout as a ‘national champion,’ is no exception,” they added.
