US warns on use of Huawei, other Chinese equipment in critical infrastructure


The US keeps up the pressure on Huawei and, not so quietly, on China:

U.S. envoy to the European Union Ambassador Gordon Sondland warned

  • “There are no compelling reasons that I can see to do business with the Chinese, so long as they have the structure in place to reach in and manipulate or spy on their customers,” 
  • “Those who are charging ahead blindly and embracing the Chinese technology without regard to these concerns may find themselves in a disadvantage in dealing with us.”
  • U.S. may have to be “more careful in sharing information, in transacting business,” and a “host of things,”

Sondland was speaking in an interview 

Although comments have been made that this is a separate issue to China / US trade talks I can’t agree with that at all.
