Huawei will need 5 years and $2b to resolve United Kingdom security concerns

Huawei has long maintained it doesn't provide back doors for the Chinese government

China's Huawei, one of the world's largest telecom giants, has been accused of being used for spying for the Chinese government. The order will ban Chinese telecommunications equipment from being used by USA carriers.

It will take three-to-five years for Huawei to address the concerns raised by the United Kingdom government over the security of its equipment and its potential to be used for espionage by the Chinese government, the telecommunications giant explained in an open letter to MPs.

Huawei is in talks with telecoms operators, such as Advanced Info Service Pcl and TRUE, to secure local partnerships ahead of a national rollout scheduled for December 2020, industry sources with knowledge of the matter said.

USA charges of stealing technology and violating sanctions on Iran have since been issued against the company, sparking new tensions in relations between the United States and China.

But the company's presence has sparked fears of Chinese espionage, with Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson warning previous year he had "very deep concerns" about the firm's role in the UK. It is the part of the network that processes telephone and internet traffic.

A spokesman from the National Security Council advised that the U.S.is "working across government and with our allies and like-minded partners to mitigate risk in the deployment of 5G and other communications infrastructure".

But while Grande's music industry peers "find themselves victim to changing tastes and trends", she has found success. But what's more interesting is the insider insists she was the only performer given this ultimatum.

Huawei wants cyber-security to be viewed as a technical rather than ideological issue and is open to supervision by European governments to prove the point, a senior company executive is expected to say on Thursday evening.

If Trump signs the telecom directive before MWC, the United States will be able to attend the conference armed with fresh evidence of its commitment to the issue.

"Cyber security remains [a] top priority" for Huawei, the world's biggest manufacturer of telecom equipment, he said, while cautioning that the improvements would take time.

As a result, heightened scrutiny on the Russian cybersecurity firm Kaspersky Lab led to the ban of its antivirus products from government systems as has been recommended by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The Chinese company has a whopping 28 percent market share in the global telecom equipment market.

'We keep a close watch on the allegations worldwide.

However, Trump's diktat, if it comes before the MWC event, will reinforce the commitment of the U.S on the sensitive issue.
