Huawei offers to build cyber security centre in Poland

Huawei has long maintained it doesn't provide back doors for the Chinese government Huawei says it could take 5 years to resolve hardware issues

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.

However, the Chinese company warned the process could take up to five years to see "tangible results".

Still, the company faces increasing worldwide scrutiny over the matter.

"Huawei has never and will never use UK-based hardware, software, or information gathered in the United Kingdom or anywhere else globally, to assist other countries in gathering intelligence".

'Modern communications networks are complex systems that keep evolving in new and innovative ways. He urged European countries to pick Finnish and other Scandinavian companies for their 5G contracts, citing a Chinese law that allegedly compels any private company in the country to cooperate with the government "on any intelligence matters in secret and without refusal". We choose to ensure security'.

"Enhancing our software engineering capabilities is like replacing components on a high-speed train in motion", CEO of the Huawei carrier business group Ryan Ding told the UK Parliament's Science and Technology Select Committee in a letter last week, according to Reuters. "Those who are charging ahead blindly and embracing the Chinese technology without regard to these concerns may find themselves in a disadvantage in dealing with us".

The report from the United Kingdom government's National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) was published in July past year, finding two low-priority national security findings and two advisory issues in its annual evaluation of the Huawei Cyber Security Evaluation Centre (HCSEC).

Should the ban on Chinese networking hardware go into full effect, the statement indicates that there will be great pressure on Europe to follow suit in avoiding the use of Chinese cellular equipment.

Any Western country allowing Huawei Technologies Co. or other Chinese equipment to be used in critical infrastructure projects will face the risk of USA countermeasures, the US envoy to the European Union said.

The company has suffered a number of setbacks in recent months because of apparent concerns over its security.

Its chief financial officer Meng Wanzhou was arrested in Canada in December at the request of the US. Last month, the US Department of Justice charged the Chinese company with trying to steal a robot design from T-Mobile and attempting to sidestep US sanctions on Iran.
