The U.S. has issued a warning to Germany that they would scale back the exchange of intelligence if their European ally allows Chinese companies to help build a high-speed internet network.

The U.S. has warned Germany that if Chinese tech companies such as Huawei help build its new 5G telecom infrastructure, U.S. agencies might not share as much intelligence with the German government as they now do.

The US Embassy in Berlin said on Monday that use of untrusted vendors by allies in their 5G mobile networks could jeopardize future sharing of intelligence by the US government.

In Germany, Economy Minister Peter Altmaier said on Thursday on a ZDF talk show that Germany did not want to ban Huawei but said that Berlin will change the law to ensure that all components used in the 5G networks will be secure.

But he said the use of untrusted vendors in allies' networks could raise questions about the integrity and confidentiality of sensitive communications within a country, and between that country and its allies.

The German Economy Ministry confirmed that the letter had been received.

In the letter, German officials are warned that the United States will stop sharing certain intelligence information with Germany's intelligence agencies if the nation allows Huawei Technologies equipment to be used as part of its 5G infrastructure.

Washington claims that Huawei - the world's biggest telecoms equipment supplier - has been stealing commercial information and spying on behalf of the Chinese government.

The US is trying to recruit Germany in its campaign against Huawei.

Last week, it filed a lawsuit against the U.S. government over a ban that restricts federal agencies from using its products, arguing it is "unconstitutional". The company vehemently denies the allegations, saying that it sees no reason why it should be restricted from building 5G infrastructure in any country.

The year ended with the arrest of Huawei's chief financial officer in Canada at U.S. request, to the consternation of China.
