Using Huawei in United Kingdom 5G network 'would be madness', USA claims

Sir Andrew's comment come as USA security officials prepare to urge the Government to exclude Huawei from any role in the construction of the 5G network.

The UK is expected to make a formal decision on whether to allow Huawei to be a part of its next-generation networks later this month.

The head of MI5, Andrew Parker, told the Financial Times he has "no reason to think" the UK's intelligence-sharing relationship with the USA would be adversely affected if Britain used Huawei technology.

But that assertion was flatly contradicted by a senior USA official who was part of the delegation, who said: "Congress has made it clear they will want an evaluation of our intelligence sharing".

Sir Andrew Parker's comments increased speculation last night that the Government is on the brink of announcing that the Chinese telecoms giant will be allowed to bid for "non core" elements of nationwide 5G infrastructure. President Trump has said if the deal goes through there certainly will be a change in intelligence collaboration. But the U.S. insists there is a surveillance risk.

The 34-year-old Swiss won the first two sets 6-4 and 7-5, forcing an injured and struggling Djokovic to retire in the third. If she’s at her best, then she’ll make it to the final and if she performs on the day the title will be hers.

British sources initially said that they were only going to meet civil servants, but the USA delegation said they had spoken to at least one cabinet minister.

The U.S. government shares intelligence information and tools with other countries within the Five Eyes, Nine Eyes and Fourteen Eyes spy alliances, as well as through other means.

The US delegation will likely include deputy national security adviser Matt Pottinger according to two people familiar with the matter who spoke with Reuters.

Huawei, the world's largest maker of mobile networking equipment, has repeatedly denied that its equipment could be used for spying.

Some, such as Japan and Australia, agreed to do that, but others, including the United Kingdom and Germany, are a little more reluctant, primarily because their national telecom companies have already purchased large quantities of Huawei equipment in order to deploy 5G networks. "We're confident the government will take a decision based on evidence - not unsubstantiated allegations".
