His comments to the newspaper “Les Echosco” on Sunday came as a result of the controversy over Huawei’s involvement in the network development process in France, after several Western countries prevented the company from participating in the development of its fifth-generation networks of high-speed internet due to security concerns.
“We call on operators who do not use Huawei not to change their position … As for those who use it mainly, we issue permits of between three and eight years,” he said.
These restrictions are likely to limit Huawei’s ability to access the fifth generation Internet network in France.
It is reported that Huawei has invested billions of dollars in this technology, competing in particular with the Swedish companies, “Ericsson” and “Nokia” Finland.
However, the United States, Britain and other countries considered that Huawei was a security threat for several reasons, including that its founder, Ren Zhengyfei, was an engineer in the People’s Liberation Army.
Huawei also confirmed that it would withdraw from any partnerships with countries hostile to its activities and would pay attention to working with countries that welcome it.
