Huawei warns it could take 5 years to address United Kingdom security concerns

In a letter to MPs yesterday the company pledged to spend £1.5billion to address security concerns but said it could take three to five years to bring "tangible results".

The move, reported Thursday by Politico, would see the USA doing what it's been pressuring its allies to do: shut Huawei, the world's biggest telecoms equipment manufacturer, out of new networks that will support the upcoming "fifth generation" (5G) of mobile connectivity.

Several countries, most notably the United States, have effectively frozen Huawei out of the market due to fears about links between the company and the Chinese government.

"Enhancing our software engineering capabilities is like replacing components on a high-speed train in motion", he said in a letter to the chairman of the British parliament's science and technology committee.

Several governments, including those of France and Germany, are also considering whether to allow the use of Huawei equipment in sensitive infrastructure.

The US considers the matter urgent as European Union countries prepare to roll out 5G networks that will deliver near-instantaneous connectivity, vast data capacity and futuristic technologies to Europeans.

'Huawei has never and will never use UK-based hardware, software or information gathered in the United Kingdom or anywhere else globally, to assist other countries in gathering intelligence.

The company also denied previous claims it could be compelled to assist Chinese national intelligence work using information gathered from the UK.

In a report published a year ago, the HCSEC said it could only offer "limited assurances" that Huawei kit was safe to use due to a lack of progress in resolving previous concerns, while a visit to Huawei facilities in Shenzhen had identified a lack of scrutiny with third party components.

"Cybersecurity should remain as a technical issue instead of an ideological issue, because technical issues can always be resolved through the right solutions while ideological issues cannot", Huawei's chief representative to the EU Institutions and VP of the European Region Abraham Liu is set to say in a speech during Huawei's Chinese New Year event in Brussels, according to Reuters.

'Were Huawei ever to engage in malicious behaviour, it would not go unnoticed - and it would certainly destroy our business.

The US Justice Department has charged Huawei with conspiring to violate US sanctions on Iran and with stealing robotic technology from T-Mobile.

The letter was a response to concerns raised by the Huawei Cyber Security Evaluation Centre, a body including Huawei, UK operators and Government officials.
