CIA warns Britain over Huawei spying
The CIA is warning Britain for its use of Huawei's technology to develop a 5G network after it was found that the Chinese telecoms company accepted money from varying branches of Beijing's state intelligence network, reports The Times.
Why this matters: This allegation directly links the world's largest telecoms equipment manufacturer to the Chinese state, per The Times. Huawei has previously denied that the company spies for China, but Chinese law forces companies to work with the security branches.
