NextGov: The U.S. is again warning its allies about the risks of using telecom equipment made by China’s Huawei. American officials have briefed their counterparts in countries like Germany, Italy, and Japan about what they argue are potential cybersecurity risks, according to the Wall Street Journal. This follows previous warnings, such as a claim earlier this year that American citizens shouldn’t use Huawei’s phones.
The U.S. may be concerned about Chinese government influence embedded in Huawei’s technology because America’s spy agencies have done the same thing in the past.
