    The United Kingdom dealt a blow yesterday to U.S. President Donald Trump's push to put pressure on the Chinese government to change its trade practices, declaring that British networks could 'mitigate' any dangers from using Chinese products in the coming 5G telecommunications network.

    According to the report, the UK National Cyber Security Centre has determined that "there are ways to limit the risks from using Huawei in future 5G ultra-fast networks" and in doing so it is ignoring escalating US efforts to persuade countries to bar Huawei from their networks on the basis that it could help China conduct espionage or cyber sabotage, reported Zero Hedge.

    "Other nations can make the argument that if the British are confident of mitigation against national security threats then they can also reassure their publics and the US administration that they are acting in a prudent manner in continuing to allow their telecommunications service providers to use Chinese components as long as they take the kinds of precautions recommended by the British,” the person said, wrote the Financial Times in a story on the issue yesterday.

    “We have to look into the level of co-ordination we need to respond. We have not yet concluded as an alliance, but it shows the need to address that issue,” said NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg at the Munich Security Conference.

    "The [coming] report will probably contain recommendations on how to handle any threats of Chinese espionage posed by Huawei to 5G networks, according to one person briefed on an early draft" the FT reported, adding that the UK will probably recommend a diversity of suppliers and partial restrictions of areas of the 5G network.
