We won’t spy, honest, vows Huawei boss

HUAWEI is willing to sign a ‘no-spy’ deal with countries including the UK to allay concerns about its technology, the company’s chairman has said.

The Chinese telecoms giant has been under scrutiny over claims — which it denies — that its 5G equipment could be exploited for espionage.

During a visit to Britain, chairman Dr Liang Hua (above) said: ‘We are willing to sign “no-spy” agreements with governments to commit ourselves, to commit our equipment, to meeting the no-spy standards.’

It follows leaked reports that Theresa May is to let Huawei help build Britain’s 5G network, despite ministers raising concerns.

The leak from the National Security Council led to the sacking of Gavin Williamson as defence secretary.
