Belgian cybersecurity center sees no threat from Huawei
Belgium’s center for cybersecurity has found no evidence that telecoms equipment supplied by Huawei could be used for spying, Reuters said. The agency, which reports to the Belgian prime minister, had been tasked with analyzing the possible threat posed by Huawei. The company supplies equipment to Belgian mobile operators Proximus, Orange Belgium and Telenet. “Until now we have not found technical indications that point in the direction of a spying threat,” a spokesman for the agency said on Monday. Global market leader Huawei is the target of a campaign by the US which has barred it from next-generation 5G networks due to concerns over its ties to the Chinese government and says other Western countries should block its technology. Huawei denies spying allegations.
