After the US Department of Justice announced the prosecution of Huawei and was trying to issue Chief Financial Officer Meng Xizhou, the government also announced that it is forbidding telecoms companies warning authorities to bid for the construction of a government computer system that is considered Huawei's technology company.
A spokesman for the Czech Ministry of Finance pointed out that the local Ministry of National Security and Security (NUKIB) issued a warning last December that Huawei and another Chinese technology company ZTE may have "security threats". A finance ministry spokesman said the Ministry of National Security Network and Information warnings had a legal effect on the Ministry of Finance and must be implemented.
Reuters has said Huawei's national network and information security warning does not completely prohibit participation in the construction of a local network, but this warning means more than 160 public and private companies responsible for managing important local infrastructures need to re-check their faces. Security risks.
Huawei's spokesman denied that the equipment they produced would cause network security risk and asked the Ministry of Finance of the Czech Republic to take back the decision in accordance with the relevant legal regulations. Otherwise, all options would be considered, but no specific action was taken.
The government of the Czech Republic has previously publicly offered a government tax system worth CZK 500 million (approximately 22 million crowns). The industry is generally optimistic that Huawei can successfully win the deal, but the National Network and Security Department warned if it could win the contract. Top Shadow.
A spokesman for Huawei said the decision of the Czech Ministry of Finance "Discrimination" described Huawei's warning to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Information Security as "unsubstantiated and misleading".
The United States, Britain and Australia have gradually announced that they will forbid Huawei from participating in the construction of the 5G communications network. Germany is also studying whether to follow it.
Huawei tested a 5G communications network test with Vodafone, but Vodafone announced on Friday (January 25th) that it would suspend the use of Huawei products at the core of its system until the relevant authorities had notified it.
Reuters reported that Czech President Milos Zeman, who was considered pro-China, publicly supported the development of Huawei in the local area, but Prime Minister Andrej Babis had the opposite view.
Barbish previously said he attaches great importance to the Ministry of National Security and Information Protection. In December of last year, he announced that he would disable the use of products manufactured by Huawei and ZTE by central government personnel.
The Chinese Embassy in the country then issued a bulletin in which Babish cited that a warning from the Ministry of National Security and Information "does not represent the position of the Czech government".
Barbish, however, denied saying that "it is not a mistake" to prohibit civil servants from using Huawei products and the announcement of the Chinese embassy "represents only a Chinese position".
"Do not be a chess piece"
On the other hand, Slovakia, neighboring the Czech Republic, has a very different attitude towards Huawei. Prime Minister Peter Pellegrini said that there is currently no evidence that Huawei's products pose security problems.
Pellegrini believes that if the country wants to discuss cyber-security issues, it should talk about all companies, not about one or two companies.
He added that politicians should be careful not to become a pawn between business wars or competitors.
