US Designates China’s Huawei & ZTE As National Security Threats

“As a result, telecom companies cannot use money from our $8.3B Universal Service Fund on equipment or services produced or provided by these suppliers,” says FCC Chairman Ajit Pai.

The United States has officially designated China-controlled Huawei and ZTE as national security threats.

The announcement was made by FCC Chairman Ajit Pai:

“BREAKING NEWS: The @FCC has designated #Huawei and #ZTE as companies posing a national security threat to the United States. As a result, telecom companies cannot use money from our $8.3B Universal Service Fund on equipment or services produced or provided by these suppliers. 1/5”

“In making this decision, @FCC took into account input from Congress, Executive Branch, intelligence community, allies, and communications service providers. Overwhelming weight of evidence supported designation of Huawei and ZTE as national security risks to U.S. networks. 2/4”

“Both Huawei and ZTE have close ties to the Chinese Communist Party and China’s military apparatus. And both companies are broadly subject to Chinese law, which obligates them to cooperate with the country’s intelligence services. 3/4”

“With this decision, we are sending a clear message: the U.S. Government, and this @FCC in particular, cannot and will not allow the Chinese Communist Party to exploit vulnerabilities in U.S. communications networks and compromise our critical communications infrastructure. 4/4”

This is a good move by the USA, and Canada should join in shutting down all activity by China-controlled telecom companies within Canada.

Companies subservient to the Chinese Communist Party are simply too big a danger to Canadians to be allowed to operate here.
