MI5 chief dismisses UK-US security fears over Huawei

The US has warned the British government it "would be madness" to use Huawei technology in the UK's 5G network. In light of this evidence, they are believed to have underscored that granting the Chinese company access would be "nothing short of madness".

The FT reckons that a raft of new-in-post Cabinet ministers are now looking at it all over again, even though officials have largely agreed that economic prosperity in the post-Brexit era must take priority over national security and potentially the closeness of Britain's military and intelligence alliance with the US.

The officials are claimed to have intimated that members of Congress would want to review the long-established US-UK intelligence-sharing relationship in future legislation, depending on the British government's final move on the matter.

A delegation from the U.S. capital - including Donald Trump's deputy national security adviser, Matt Pottinger - presented British ministers with new technical evidence on Monday about the risks, according to the Financial Times.

Speaking to BBC Breakfast this morning Mr Johnson said: 'If people oppose one brand or the other, they have to tell us what the alternative is, right?'

"We have a close and longstanding security and intelligence-sharing relationship with the USA and that will continue".

Huawei has denied that it is in bed with the Chinese government and that its products can be used for spying, in turn warning the United Kingdom that by caving in to American pressure, it may see its own technological development fall behind on a "fabricated pretext." . Johnson is expected to make a final decision about Huawei's involvement in the country's 5G infrastructure shortly.

Thus, currently, all four mobile networks in Britain have launched 5G with Vodafone, BT, EE and Three using the Chinese company's equipment at the so-called non-core level.

The US has upped the rhetorical ante on its largely unfounded claims that Chinese telecommunications giant Huawei will severely compromise a country's cyber security if it is allowed to work on any of the world's burgeoning national 5G networks.
