BARCELONA, Spain (Reuters) – Huawei Technologies rotating president said on Sunday that he had noticed Donald Trump’s message about allowing competition in the telecommunications sector and that the president was right because the United States the needs of 5G technology.
Guo Ping also said Huawei had to face cyber security challenges led by a great power which he did not identify.
The United States, Guo said, did not for the whole world, and so Huawei could succeed without the United States.
At the risk of Trump issuance of an executive order banning of Huawei in the United States, he said: ‘this is not necessary and should not be released”. He added that such a step would hurt Huawei’s small number of customers in the united states.
Guo said that the world needed clear uniform regulations on cyber security with every stakeholder to play a role, but that such issues should not be decided by politics.
“We need to have a universal standard that should be verifiable. It should not be based on politics,” he said.
