U.S. to discuss challenges posed by China, 5G with NATO allies


NOVEMBER 29, 2019 / 1:16 PM


WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States will discuss threats posed by China, including the country’s dominance of 5G telecommunications networks, when U.S. President Donald Trump meets with allies at a NATO summit in London next week, an official told reporters on Friday.


Even as the United States and China strive to complete an agreement on the first phase of a trade deal, a senior administration official said the United States will insist that allies use trusted network providers.


“This is a very, very high priority for us and the president is going to reiterate that message,” the official said.


The United States has warned allies against using equipment made by China’s Huawei Technologies Co Ltd, saying that its gear could be used by China for spying. Concerns have focused on a Chinese law on domestic companies’ cooperation with the government on security matters, with critics saying that these could compel them to be a vehicle for Chinese spying.

美国警告盟国不要使用中国华为技术有限公司(Huawei Technologies Co Ltd.)生产的设备,称其装备可能被中国用于间谍活动。外界关注的焦点是中国一项关于国内企业在安全问题上与政府合作的法律,批评人士称,这可能迫使它们成为中国间谍活动的工具。

Huawei denies the allegations made by Washington.


The U.S. official added that China presents a challenge to NATO and wants to undermine the rules-based international order.


“China is actively seeking a great presence and more influence across the globe, including in NATO’s area of responsibility,” the official told reporters.


Tensions between Washington and Beijing have been inflamed by Trump’s signing into law on Wednesday bills that back protesters in Hong Kong and threaten China with possible sanctions on human rights. The bill signing prompted China’s Foreign Ministry on Thursday to warn of “firm counter measures.”

特朗普周三签署法律法案,加剧了华盛顿和北京之间的紧张关系,这些法案支持香港的抗议者,并威胁对中国因违反人权而可能实施的制裁。 这项法案的签署促使中国外交部周四警告称,将采取“坚决的反制措施”。
