SYDNEY (Reuters) - Australia's government on Thursday banned major Chinese telecoms firm Huawei Technologies Co Ltd [HWT.UL] from supplying equipment for its planned 5G mobile network, citing risks of foreign interference.

 

Huawei's involvement in the network rollout, and resistance to it from Australia's security agencies, has become a flashpoint between the trading partners in recent months as a row over alleged Chinese meddling in Australian politics deepened.

 

Australia's stance resembles the position of the United States, which has largely shut out Huawei from the lucrative U.S. market over national security concerns.

 

Suppliers "who are likely to be subject to extrajudicial directions from a foreign government" would leave Australia's network vulnerable to unauthorised access or interference, the government said in a statement.

 

The statement did not name the Chinese firm specifically, but a government official who declined to be named said the order was aimed at Huawei and precluded its involvement in the network.

 

Chinese law requires organisations and citizens to support, assist and cooperate with intelligence work.

 

Huawei's Australian arm, which strenuously denies it is controlled by Beijing, said on Twitter on Thursday that the action was an "extremely disappointing result for consumers".

 

Like their U.S. counterparts, Australian security authorities have for months worried Huawei's ties to the Chinese government opened a possibility that its equipment could be used for espionage, drawing increasingly pointed denials from the firm.

 

Huawei, the world's largest maker of telecommunications network gear and the No. 3 smartphone supplier, had offered Canberra complete oversight of 5G network equipment, which could include base stations, towers and radio transmission equipment.

A well considered and credible decision given their taste for hegemony. They already colonised Tibet, went back on their agreements re Hong Kong, threatening peaceful Taiwan, and trying to buy Pacific and other nations by extending loans that can never be repaid.When the loans can't be serviced, as they well knew they wouldn't, they will demand port and land leases to build their military bases. China must be countered with force, its the only language they understand.

Guess they're waiting for that to happen. China could afford 300 million casualties, US can't.

But the U.S. would be willing to oblige them. No problem.

Yes, a truly wise decision.  Its the same reason I reject anything from the United Kingdom, given its historically well established taste for hegemony.

The world today seems absolutley crackers,
With nuclear bombs to blow us all sky high.
There's fools and idiots sitting on the trigger.
It's depressing, and it's senseless, and that's why...
I like chinese,
I like chinese,
They only come up to you knees,
Yet they're always friendly and they're ready to to please.
I like chinese,
I like chinese,
There's nine hundred million of them in the world today,
You'd better learn to like them, that's what I say.
I like chinese,
I like chinese,
They come from a long way overseas,
But they're cute, and they're cuddly, and they're ready to please.
I like chinese food,
The waiters never are rude,
Think the many things they've done to impress,
There's maoism, taoism, I Ching and chess.
I like chinese,
I like chinese,
I like their tiny little trees,
Their zen, their ping-pong, their ying and yang-eze.
I like chinese thought,
The wisdom that Confusious taught,
If Darwin is anything to shout about,
The chinese will survive us all without any doubt.
So, I like chinese,
I like chinese,
They only come up to you knees,
Yet they're wise, and they're witty, and they're ready to please
Wo, ai zhong guo ren,
Wo, ai zhong guo ren,
Wo, ai zhong guo ren,
Ni hao ma, Ni hao ma, Ni hao ma zai jian.
I like chinese,
I like chinese,
Their food is guaranteed to please,
A fourteen, a seven, a nine and li-chese
I like chinese,
I like chinese,
I like their tiny little trees,
Their zen, their ping-pong, their yin and yang-eze
I like chinese,
I like chinese,

In my humble opinion, the Chinese medicine could help you ?
