  • Huawei says it could take 5 years to resolve hardware issues

After pledging $2 billion to alleviate security fears in the UK, Huawei has now stated that it would accept full supervision from the European Union (EU) should it be allowed to continue pushing its 5G network.

Other countries are carefully monitoring the Huawei situation, with its' chief financial officer Meng Wanzhou, who is the daughter of the company's founder, having been arrested in Canada a year ago at the request of the United States over alleged violations of Iran sanctions.

No evidence has been produced publicly and the firm has repeatedly denied the claims, but the allegations have led several Western countries to restrict Huawei's access to their markets.

Chancellor Angela Merkel's government has ruled out an outright ban targeting Chinese equipment supplier Huawei Technologies Co.as the country moves toward building its ultrafast fifth-generation networks, according to a government official.

"It is a complicated and involved process, and will take at least three to five years to see tangible results. By working closely with our European partners, we are creating a better future for all of us".

Compensation for Nick Foles could be a third-round pick
And, it's clear he wants to do it because in order to void the contract Foles must pay the Eagles $2 million. The Eagles have informed Foles they are picking up that option, according to ESPN's Tim McManus .

It's believed Huawei and ZTE aren't specifically named in the executive order, but the companies would obviously fall under the category of Chinese telecom equipment providers. In an interview last month, Andrus Ansip, European Commission vice president for digital affairs, said China's National Intelligence Law, passed in 2017, has increased the risk in dealing with Chinese companies in Europe.

Ltd. (Huawei), a renowned Chinese multinational telecommunications equipment firm, has reportedly proposed to construct a new cybersecurity center in Poland in an effort to demonstrate that the firm is trustworthy.

The group had warned that Huawei's software had "shortcomings" that meant it could not rule out potential security risks to the networks of British phone companies and other critical infrastructure. "Were Huawei ever to engage in malicious behaviour, it would not go unnoticed - and it would certainly destroy our business". It states that Chinese organisations are obliged to "support, cooperate with, and collaborate in, national intelligence work". "Cyber-security is our top concern and as an independent global company we are totally committed to supplying the best possible and safest technology to our clients".

So far, Huawei hasn't responded to Politico's report.
