BERLIN (AP) - Germany's interior minister is suggesting that his country can't build a 5G mobile network without Chinese tech giant Huawei, at least for now, intervening in an issue that has caused tensions between the US and its allies.
He also called on Europeans and his compatriots to make efforts to become more competitive in this field, as no German company is now able to build the 5G network and only two European firms have that capability. "And it is a choice that the British government will not want to make on certain issues". "I am against global and general trade restrictions", he said, adding that he fully agrees with Chancellor Angela Merkel on the matter.
Seehofer told the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung that Germany could put additional safety nets in place to ensure the security of the system, although he did not mention what those measures could be. Companies like Huawei must also assure the German government that none of its components pose a security risk to the country. "We have to secure protection against espionage and sabotage", he concluded.

The chancellor, however, argued that no company should be barred from Germany's 5G network, with Foreign Minister Heiko Maas insisting that Berlin can "never be blackmailed" by the USA, which previously threatened to reduce intelligence sharing between Berlin and Washington if Huawei is allowed in the country. Huawei is the largest networking equipment company in the world and is supplying its gear for many of these projects.
