Huawei Is a Huge Challenge for Europe's Spies: Lionel Laurent

The technological Cold War that’s breaking out between the U.S. and China has exposed Europe’s awkward attempts to walk a fine diplomatic line between the two superpowers.

Super-fast 5G mobile networks are the most visible example. The EU doesn’t want to copy Donald Trump’s ban on China’s Huawei Technologies Co Ltd. (despite his threat to curb intelligence sharing with the British unless they fall into line). But neither does Europe want to turn a blind eye to the Chinese cyber-security threat and evidence of the country’s unfair trade practices. The continent’s leaders are trying to find their own united path. It’s an encouraging ambition, but one that’s still a long way from being realized.

Trump / USA bullying and unproven accusation ain't going work with EU, Africa & Asia. USA lost the fight when Trump linked the Huawei CFO arrest and Huawei "security" ban to trade talks.

Huawei ban is about USA profit and greed, not about security.

Yup, and they are also tjoep still about the Cisco kit. And no one in the US Guv has actually the balls to admit they are tech idiots and thought telnet was a hacker backdoor.
