China openly blames the US for the failed plans of the UK and Chinese technology company Huawei to develop 5G.
Chinese Ambassador to the UK Liu Xiaoming said London’s decision to cancel previously agreed plans to give Huawei a leading role in the development of 5G had been “seriously poisoned” in UK-China relations, Sky News reported on Thursday.
Liu said the UK was trying to interfere in the Chinese government’s internal affairs by openly condemning Hong Kong’s latest national security laws and their suspended extradition treaty.

He also accused the UK of confusing “straight from wrong”;, “recklessly” slandering “China’s Xinjiang policy” towards the Uighurs and calling their actions in Xinjiang a “so-called” human rights issue. “
Liu also warned the UK government against Cold War activists and their “comments on anti-Chinese forces inside and outside the UK”, citing the Trump administration, which spoke out against China’s action on coronavirus, the 5G race and the Uighur population. human rights violations.
Another Chinese official condemned US action in persuading countries not to allow Huawei to help develop 5G.
“The real cause of Pompeo’s hostility to Chinese companies has nothing to do with national security or democracy, freedoms, fairness or reciprocity,” Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin told reporters on Thursday.
“It’s just because they are Chinese companies and also leaders in their business.”
U.S. security officials, largely led by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, have expressed concern about the Chinese government’s ability to demand access to Huawei’s foreign networks, which the telecommunications company could theoretically have created by hand.

“The parties must be able to trust that 5G hardware and software will not jeopardize national security, economic security, privacy, intellectual property or human rights,” Pompeo told a news conference a few days before the UK canceled their deal with Huawei.
Chinese officials are not mistaken in accusing the US government of a change of heart in the UK.
British officials said their decision was largely based on U.S. pressure and sanctions that made it difficult for countries to ensure the safety of the equipment being developed.
The US has also threatened to stop sharing intelligence if the UK continues with Huawei, citing security concerns about China’s potential surveillance and surveillance capabilities.
“Pompeo has claimed that by excluding Huawei, the countries will join the ranks of ‘clean countries,'” Wenbin said on Thursday. “The so-called ‘clean countries’ he has led are nothing more than a code of double standards.”

The UK, along with the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Latvia, Poland, Romania and Sweden, has responded to Pompeo’s warnings about potential security threats and banned all Huawei products from future 5G networks.
“Our energetic diplomacy has helped the international awakening to rise up against the threat of the CCP (Chinese Communist Party). Senators, the wave is spinning, “he said at a meeting of the Pompeo Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Thursday, explaining that countries around the world support US initiatives to prevent China’s technical giant from further developing.
