The U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has officially declared Chinese telecommunications companies Huawei and ZTE as threats to national security. This is stated in the commission’s order.

Following this decision, it will not be allowed to use the FCC funds in order to purchase and maintain any equipment or services provided or manufactured by these companies.

We cannot and will not allow the Chinese Communist Party to exploit network vulnerabilities and compromise our critical communications infrastructure,” FCC Chairman Ajit Pai stated.

It was also noted that both Huawei and ZTE had close ties with the Chinese Communist Party and China’s military apparatus, and they were broadly subject to Chinese law obligating them to cooperate with the country’s intelligence services.

As we reported earlier, EU authorities plan to limit the access of Chinese corporation Huawei to the launch of the fifth-generation mobile network (5G) in the EU.

The EU’s draft 5G launch plan states that companies that see risks to national security will not be allowed to access critical infrastructure. Huawei is considered one of those companies.
