However, the minister also revealed that the government will amend the law to ensure that all components used in the 5G network are secure and will not violate the "data protection rules."

He also said that in this case, the government will not use its veto power to prevent foreign acquisitions, because 5G network construction is not a question about mergers and acquisitions.

Earlier in the day, Germany set stricter standards for telecom network equipment suppliers. Instead of listing Huawei as a special treatment object, it said that the same rules should apply to all suppliers.

Allies are loose

Since last year, the United States has been arguing that allies have "enclosed" Huawei and tried to exclude the company from the 5G construction on the grounds of so-called "security issues."

Recently, however, the attitudes of some Western countries have been loosened: First, the British government announced that the risk of Huawei's 5G equipment is controllable. Then New Zealand also stated that it has never excluded Huawei from its domestic 5G construction.

Last month, the Wall Street Journal reported that many German officials were quoted saying that the government is considering allowing Huawei to participate in the construction of its high-speed Internet infrastructure.

They also revealed that some departments have reached a preliminary agreement two weeks ago and still require formal approval from all cabinets and parliaments. It is expected that a final decision will be made in a few weeks.

Yesterday, Huawei, which was “suppressed” by the United States, issued a strong counterattack at the Shenzhen headquarters: it decided to sue the US government and asked the court to determine that the “Huawei ban” violated the US Constitution.

Guo Ping, chairman of Huawei’s rotating chairman, raised the question on the same day: “Given that the United States has never provided any evidence to prove its security allegations, we suspect that it is not motivated by other countries’ use of Huawei products: is it worried that other countries will use advanced 5G technology catches up with the US?"

"Perhaps the US government mistakenly believes that suppressing Huawei can benefit it. But the fact is that restricting Huawei's participation in the construction of 5G networks in the United States and other countries will only harm the interests of these countries. The faster deployment of 5G networks will make all countries Benefit." Guo Ping said.

In addition, Huawei also accused the US government of attacking Huawei.server, stealing emails and source code.
