华为技术有限公司获得了重要的信任投票,德国最大的电信公司之一选择华为作为其5G网络的关键电信设备供应商。


运营德国第二大无线网络的Telefonica Deutschland选择了华为和芬兰的诺基亚(Nokia)为其5G网络提供设备。


此举出台之际,法国和德国官员曾公开表示,两国不会效仿美国,将华为排除在5G网络的推出之外。


分析人士表示,西班牙电信德国公司的决定表明,互利的商业合作伙伴关系不会因政治干预而偏离正常方向,而美国政府以无端指控为由加大力度禁止华为的努力最终将以失败告终。


西班牙电信集团Telefonica Deutschland在一份声明中表示,该交易必须得到德国当局的批准,后者目前正在敲定针对电信设备供应商的安全规定。


Telefonica Deutschland表示,他们正在考虑正在进行的制定这些安全指导方针的政治进程,但不希望延迟5G扩展的开始。


该公司紧随瑞士“日出”公司的脚步,推出了华为5G网络。到目前为止,Sunrise已经在瑞士262多个城镇推出了5G服务,其5G核心和无线网络中超过50%的电信设备由华为提供。


周四,中国外交部发言人华春莹否认了媒体有关中国政府威胁说,如果不同意使用华为的设备,将取消与法罗群岛的贸易协议的报道


华表示,这些说法“完全是虚假的,是别有用心的”。全球最大的移动网络设备制造商华为(Huawei)表示,“据报道,该公司不知道中国大使与法罗群岛(Faeroese)政界人士在11月有任何会面”。


中国国际贸易与经济合作研究院高级研究员白明表示,华为5G合同的不断增加表明,美国将政治与正常商业合作相结合的努力最终会失败,因为事实将比华盛顿的无端指责更有说服力。


越来越多的欧洲国家对华为设备在其5G网络中的使用采取不偏不倚的态度。法国经济部长潘尼埃尔-鲁纳切尔(Agnes panier - runacher)最近在接受当地媒体采访时表示,法国不会在5G领域排斥华为。


德国还表示,在5G扩建计划中,不会单独挑出任何电信运营商,包括华为。


11月底,德国总理默克尔(Angela Merkel)呼吁欧洲国家在推出这一超高速无线技术时,对中国和华为采取共同的态度。


法国巴黎高等商学院(HEC Paris)经济学和国际事务教授杰里米·盖斯(Jeremy Ghez)表示,对华为采取共同态度符合欧洲国家的共同利益。


上述言论发表之际,美国政府一直指责华为构成安全风险,但迄今未能提供任何事实证据。美国政府试图禁止联邦机构和美国农村电信运营商购买华为的设备和服务。


华为首席财务官孟晚舟目前应美国要求在加拿大被拘留。2018年12月1日,应美方要求,加拿大当局在温哥华国际机场将其逮捕,并将其软禁。


最近,关于孟案件的更详细的证据已经出现,许多媒体指出这个案件是由政治力量驱动的。


加拿大报纸《环球邮报》(The Globe and Mail)在最近的一篇文章中透露,“当华盛顿需要加拿大的帮助来逮捕华为的一名高管时,白宫、国会和外交使团的官员在渥太华的政界人士到来之前几个小时就得到了消息。”


英国《卫报》(The Guardian)专栏作家西蒙•蒂索尔(Simon Tisdall)表示,孟被捕的真正原因是中美之间的地缘政治和经济竞争。


电信行业网站Cctime首席执行官项立刚表示,孟的被捕并不是一个孤立的事件,而是美国政府针对华为系统行动的一部分。


华为在早些时候的一份声明中表示,公司相信孟是无辜的,并认为对她的逮捕是非法的程序滥用——出于政治考虑和策略,而不是出于法治。

 

German unit of Spanish company reposes confidence in tech giant

Huawei Technologies Co has secured an important vote of trust, with one of Germany's biggest telecom companies selecting the Chinese company as a key telecom equipment supplier for its 5G network.

Telefonica Deutschland, which operates Germany's second-largest wireless network, has chosen Huawei alongside Finland's Nokia Oyj for supplying equipment to its 5G network.

The move came as French and German officials have said publicly that the two countries would not follow the United States in excluding Huawei from its 5G network rollout.

Telefonica Deutschland's decision showcases that mutually-beneficial business partnerships would not be derailed by political interference, and Washington's intensified efforts to ban Huawei on groundless accusations will fail ultimately, analysts said.

A part of the Spanish Telefonica group, Telefonica Deutschland said in a statement that the deal has to be approved by German authorities, who are currently finalizing the security rules for telecom equipment suppliers.

Telefonica Deutschland said it is taking into account the ongoing political process of establishing these security guidelines, but does not want to delay the start of the 5G expansion.

The company has followed in the footsteps of Switzerland's Sunrise which has launched its Huawei-powered 5G network. Sunrise has so far rolled out 5G services in more than 262 Swiss towns and cities, and over 50 percent of telecom equipment in its 5G core and radio networks is provided by Huawei.

On Thursday, Chinese foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying denied media reports that the Chinese government threatened to cancel a trade deal with the Faeroe Islands if it does not agree to use Huawei's equipment

Hua said the claims "are completely false and have ulterior motives". Huawei, the world's biggest maker of mobile network gear, said it "was not aware of any meeting between the Chinese ambassador and Faeroese politicians in November as reported".

Bai Ming, a senior research fellow with the Chinese Academy of International Trade and Economic Cooperation, said the growing list of Huawei's 5G contracts shows that the US efforts to mix politics with normal business cooperation would fail ultimately, as facts would speak louder than Washington's groundless accusations.

An increasing number of European countries are taking an unbiased approach toward the use of Huawei equipment in their 5G network rollout. French Junior Economy Minister Agnes Pannier-Runacher recently said in an interview with local media that France will not exclude Huawei in 5G.

Germany also said that it would not single out any telecom player, including Huawei, in its 5G build-out.

In late November, German Chancellor Angela Merkel called on European countries to agree to a common approach toward China and Huawei in the rollout of the superfast wireless technology.

Jeremy Ghez, an affiliate professor of economics and international affairs at HEC Paris, a French international business school, said a common attitude toward Huawei is in the common interests of European countries.

All the comments came as the US government has been accusing Huawei of posing security risks but so far it has failed to provide any factual evidences. Washington has sought to ban federal agencies and US rural telecom carriers from buying Huawei's equipment and services.

Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou is currently detained in Canada following a request by the US. She was arrested at Vancouver International Airport by Canadian authorities at the request of the US on Dec 1, 2018, and has been held under house arrest since then.

Recently, more detailed evidence about Meng's case has emerged, and many media outlets pointed out that the case is driven by political forces.

Canadian newspaper The Globe and Mail revealed in a recent article that "When Washington needed Canada's help to apprehend a top Huawei executive, officials in the White House, Congress and diplomatic corps were informed of what would happen hours before politicians in Ottawa."

Simon Tisdall, columnist for The Guardian, said geopolitical and economic rivalry between China and the US is what's really behind Meng's arrest.

Meng's arrest is not an isolated incident, but one of many actions taken as part of the US government's systematic campaign against Huawei, said Xiang Ligang, CEO of telecom industry website Cctime.

Huawei said in an earlier statement that the company has confidence in Meng's innocence, and it believes that her arrest was an unlawful abuse of process-one guided by political considerations and tactics, not by the rule of law.
