Trump: Huawei's 5G equipment poses security risk

United States President Donald Trump said on Wednesday that he believes that Chinese tech giant Huawei poses a "security risk" and noted he has talked to many countries urging them to exclude the company's equipment from their 5G networks.

Speaking alongside German Chancellor Angela Merkel at the NATO summit in London, Trump claimed that Italy and all other countries he discussed the issue with assured him they will not let Huawei participate in setting up their 5G network infrastructure.

Earlier, France hinted it does not plan to ban the Chinese company from its 5G network, while Merkel called on the European Union to "find common solutions" on the issue. The German chancellor's Christian Democratic Union (CDU) earlier warned against "entrusting the German 5G network to the Chinese state" and proposed the exclusion of Huawei.
