First, the British used their assets in Washington, such as Vice President Mike Pence, to get the U.S.to launch economic warfare against the Chinese telecommunications giant Huawei, denouncing the world leader in 5G technology as a "security threat" to all the nations of the West, because it is supposedly handing over secret information to the Chinese government.
Martin said secure 5G networks in Britain will be governed by three "preconditions": higher cybersecurity standards, resilience - or being able minimize disruptions if a system is exploited - and diversity.
The center's oversight board in July lowered the level of assurance it could give the British government because it identified technical issues in Huawei's engineering processes.
Pompeo told Hungary's foreign minister that it would be hard for the USA to partner with countries where Huawei equipment was "co-located" with American technology.
Allowing Huawei to participate in the UK's 5G market would be "naïve" at best and "irresponsible" at worst, according to a new paper from the Royal United Services Institute (RUSI), a UK security think tank.
Huawei permitted only for 5G trials so far: DoT Secretary. "We can start the 5G trial within one month of getting approval from the Department of Telecommunications (DoT)", Chen told IANS on the sidelines of the workshop, adding that Huawei was in talks with all the major telecom operators in India including Bharti Airtel, Reliance Jio and the state-run BSNL for 5G roll-out in the country.
More than 150 ISIS militants handed over to Iraq from Syria
A Reuters witness saw warplanes in the sky over Baghouz on Thursday though there was no sound of fighting or shelling. The attack took place near the town of Al-Shahil in the southeast of oil-rich Deir Az Zor province that borders Iraq.
Pope Francis promises action against sex abuse priests
The 82-year-old hopes to raise awareness about abuse through prayers, speeches, working groups and testimonies from victims. Patterson says she's praying the Catholic church will figure out a way around that.
Zebras: Why do they have stripes?
Some thought stripes must help zebras blend into the grasses to avoid lions, which is the worst explanation I've ever heard. The striped animals nearly continuously swish their tails during the day and will stop feeding if they feel bothered.
But the company has come under fire in Britain since a government report in July a year ago found that technical and supply-chain issues with its equipment had exposed national telecoms networks to new security risks.
The NCSC didn't say that the risk of Chinese espionage will be preventable once Huawei 5G tech is deployed by United Kingdom telecom companies, but that it should be "manageable".
"We are fully prepared". The head of the British intelligence service MI6, Alex Younger, has indicated that the situation is too complex to simply ban Huawei and that countries have a "sovereign right to work through the answer to all of this".
He also argues that putting hidden backdoors in network systems is more straightforward than finding them. The German provider Deutsche Telekom has estimated the cost of any retroactive ban as billions of euros.
On Tuesday, Chinese state-owned Global Times claimed Chinese tourists were considering abandoning plans to visit New Zealand to "punish" the country over the ban.
"Other nations can make the argument that if the British are confident of mitigation against national security threats then they can also reassure their publics and the USA administration that they are acting in a prudent manner in continuing to allow their telecommunications service providers to use Chinese components as long as they take the kinds of precautions recommended by the British", the source told the newspaper.
