Ende des NATO-Gipfels: „Ein sehr erfolgreiches Treffen“

Erstmals wird in der Londoner Erklärung auch die aufstrebende Militärmacht China als zwar nicht aktuelle, aber mögliche neue Bedrohung erwähnt. Dies war US-Präsident Donald Trump mit Blick auf den Ausbau der Mobilfunknetze 5G wichtig.

Vor der Zerreißprobe

Nicht nur wegen des Drucks aus den Vereinigten Staaten, sondern vor allem auch aufgrund der Bemühungen, die EU als Weltmacht neben den USA und China zu positionieren, hat nun aber inzwischen die Suche nach Optionen begonnen, die 5G-Netze in der EU ausschließlich mit Hilfe europäischer Firmen zu konstruieren. Der Sache nach geht es dabei um Nokia (Finnland) und Ericsson (Schweden). Beide liegen hinter Huawei zurück und sind zur Zeit außerdem auf Huawei-Patente angewiesen.

Mobilfunk-Lizenzen: Gut 6,5 Milliarden Euro für 5G

Doch stattdessen wird ein Viertel der jetzt verfügbaren Lizenzen gar nicht versteigert, sondern verkauft. Direkt. Ohne langwierige Auktion. Und die Industrie kann damit theoretisch schon Ende dieses Jahres durchstarten. Nicht erst 2021 wie die Netzbetreiber.

Gavin Williamson urged to force Theresa May to hold judge-led inquiry into sacking over Huawei leak

The former defence secretary is being urged by friends to table a Parliamentary motion demanding a new investigation, which would almost certainly be backed by opposition parties and a number of Tory MPs.

He is also weighing up whether to engineer his own “Geoffrey Howe moment” by making a speech in the Commons that could hasten Theresa May’s downfall, in the same way that the former deputy PM triggered the leadership contest that ended Margaret Thatcher’s premiership.

Die Tests könnten in sicheren Speziallaboren angefertigt werden, das ist beispielsweise in Deutschland vorgeschlagen worden“, so Malý.

Die Frage der Sicherheit drängt auch hierzulande, denn im November sollen die Frequenzen für das 5G-Netz versteigert werden.

U.S. Threatens U.K. On Huawei And Intelligence-Sharing

(29.04.2019)

On Monday, the U.S. sent a stark message across the Atlantic: „It is the United States’ position that putting Huawei or any other untrustworthy vendor in any part of the 5G telecommunications network is a risk,” said Robert Strayer, as reported by Reuters. This can hardly come as a surprise to the U.K. Washington has made no secret of its binary view of Huawei’s equipment, and the U.K. is its closest ally, even within the Five Eyes.

US secretary of state Mike Pompeo to warn Theresa May over Huawei as leak scandal turns to farce

Mike Pompeo will say in a face-to-face meeting next Wednesday that the Chinese technology company poses a risk to British citizens and could breach privacy protections when he meets the Prime Minister and Jeremy Hunt, the Foreign Secretary, in London.

The former head of the CIA will make clear that giving Huawei access could throw US-UK technology partnerships into doubt, according to a senior US State Department official, who said spelling out the risks was „imperative“.

Police must decide on prosecution over Huawei leak, says Hunt

Responding to a question from the Press Association during a visit to Ethiopia, Mr Hunt said: “Let me say that, when it comes to issues like whether there should be a police investigation or not, there’s a very, very important principle of our system that those decisions are not made by politicians, they are made independently by police.

“And that has to be the correct way forward in this situation.”

No need to refer Huawei leak to police, Cabinet Secretary says

„The Prime Minister has said she now considers that this matter has been closed and the Cabinet Secretary does not consider it necessary to refer it to the police, but we would of course cooperate fully should the police themselves consider that an investigation were necessary.“

Lidington’s remarks were echoed by Cabinet Secretary Sir Mark Sedwill – the most senior civil servant in the UK – who said he did not believe it necessary to refer the matter to the police.

Geopolitics – Huawei ban: Australia becomes increasingly isolated among Five Eyes partners if UK includes Chinese firm in 5G network

(26.04.2019)

The US has urged other Five Eyes members – the UK, Canada, New Zealand and Australia – to exclude Huawei from the construction of new telecommunications networks, claiming the company could provide covert access for Chinese intelligence collection, making secure data vulnerable.

However, if the reports from the UK prove accurate, Australia would stand alone as the only member of the Five Eyes alliance – aside from the US – with an all-out ban on Chinese telecoms equipment. Australia, for its part, on Thursday reaffirmed the ban.

„I am sorry that you feel recent leaks from the National Security Council originated in my Department. I emphatically believe this was not the case. I strenuously deny that I was in any way involved in this leak and I am confident that a thorough and formal inquiry would have vindicated my position.

I have always trusted my civil servants, military advisers and staff. I believe the assurances they have given me.

I appreciate you offering me the option to resign, but to resign would have been to accept that I, my civil servants, my military advisers or my staff were responsible: this was not the case.“
