The United States threatens Spain , if it doesn’t exclude Chinese company Huawei from the 5G network, Washington will not share intelligence data with Madrid.
“If countries adopt unreliable technology to develop their network, they will jeopardize their capacity for cooperation,” said Robert Strayer, US deputy secretary of state on Thursday. and responsible for cyber and international communications and information policy.
Strayer has spoken during an act at the United States embassy in Madrid (Spanish capital), where he has also urged the entire European Union (EU) to exclude all Chinese companies and instead maintain corporations of “trust” with others Business.

In this regard, he has mentioned some telecommunications companies such as Ericsson, Nokia and Samsung; “There are reliable suppliers with technology at the height of Huawei,” he said about it.
He then said that if China intends to develop 5G networks of countries allied with the United States, this can put intelligence cooperation at risk.
China, Strayer has claimed, “doesn’t have an independent judicial system,” which, in the words of the US official, makes any important information “at risk of being accessed by the Chinese Communist Party.”
The Chinese telecommunications giant, a pioneer in the development of 5G technology, is immersed in a confrontation with Washington, which accuses him of spying on Beijing through its devices, which belies the company.
Last year, US President Donald Trump banned the use of telecommunications equipment manufactured by companies considered a threat to US national security. and blacklisted Huawei on its blacklist. In addition, it pressures its European allies to close the doors of their national 5G networks to Chinese companies.
However, despite pressure from the US, the United Kingdom gave the green light to the still limited activities of the Chinese group Huawei in the 5G telephone network project in the European country
