CIA Says Huawei Is Funded By China’s State Security


When it comes to Huawei, it’s no secret that the US has a bone to pick with the company.

Huawei devices were banned in the US Government and the company entered an expensive, complicated battle with the authorities, sometimes aided by the Trump administration.

Now, a new The Times report cites a source claiming that the CIA said that Huawei is funded by Chinese state security.

According to the report, the CIA told UK intelligence officials that the People’s Liberation Army, the National Security Commission and a “third branch” of Chinese state security all funded Huawei.

Moreover, the CIA also warned other the other Five Eyes countries (Australia, New Zealand and Canada) to exercise caution when it comes to allowing Huawei equipment.

Huawei has declined to comment on these claims, with a representative saying that these are “unsubstantiated allegations backed up by zero evidence from anonymous sources.”

Meanwhile, reports like these could impact Huawei’s bottom line and, more importantly for regular people, the adoption of 5G. The company is a major provider of networking equipment for 5G networks and all the countries named in this report are the most important players in the upcoming rollout.
