China is putting the blame on the US for failed plans between the UK and Chinese technology company Huawei, on plans to develop 5G.
China’s ambassador to the United Kingdom, Liu Xiaoming, said London’s decision to reverse the previously agreed plans to give Huawei a key role in their 5G development was a “serious poisoning” of the UK-China relationship, Sky News reported Thursday.
Liu said the UK is trying to interfere with the Chinese government’s internal affairs, openly condemning the recent national security laws established in Hong Kong and the suspension of the extradition treaty.

He also went on to accuse the UK of confusing “right from wrong,” negligently “defaming” China’s Xinjiang-related policy “in relation to the Uighurs and calling their actions in Xinjiang “the so-called” human rights issue. “
Liu also warned the UK government against “Cold War” actors and “their remarks of forces against China in the UK and abroad,” an allusion to the Trump administration that was vocal in disapproval. for China’s actions regarding the coronavirus, the race for 5G and reported human rights abuses committed against the Uighur population.
Another Chinese official condemned US actions to persuade Huawei not to let Huawei help in their 5G development.
“The real reason behind Pompeo’s animosity towards Chinese companies has nothing to do with national security or democracy, freedoms, justice or reciprocity,” the ministry spokesman said. Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Wenbin told reporters Thursday.
“It’s simply because they are Chinese companies and also run their own business lines.”
U.S. security officials, mainly led by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, have raised concerns about the Chinese government’s potential ability to request access from Huawei’s foreign networks that the telecommunications company theoretically had in mind. in hand for building.

“Countries need to be confident that 5G equipment and software will not threaten national security, economic security, privacy, intellectual property, or human rights,” Pompeo told a news conference a few days before the UK rescind their deal with Huawei.
Chinese officials are not correct when they stopped the US government for changing the heart of the UK.
British officials said their decision was based largely on pressure from the US and sanctions that made it difficult for countries to ensure the safety of the equipment being developed.
The U.S. was also threatened with cutting intelligence sharing if the UK proceeded with Huawei, citing security concerns related to China’s potential surveillance and monitoring capabilities.
“Pompeo has been calling for that by excluding Huawei, countries are joining the ranks of‘ clean countries ’,” Wenbin said Thursday. “The so-called ‘clean countries’ that he was showing is nothing but a code name of double standards.”
