In the United States, Senator Tom Cotton has introduced a bill that would prohibit the United States from sharing intelligence with countries that allow Huawei to operate their 5G networks.
“The United States shouldn’t be sharing valuable intelligence information with countries that allow an intelligence-gathering arm of the Chinese Communist Party to operate freely within their borders.
I urge our allies around the world to carefully consider the consequences of dealing with Huawei to their national interests.”Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark.
The ban would apply to both information and intelligence products of the U.S. intelligence community.
In 2018 Congress passed legislation that bans the Federal government from doing business with China-based Huawei and ZTE, over concerns that the companies are too tightly aligned with the Chinese government.
