?"New Zealand has become the latest country to ban Huawei 5g devices," the latest western country to ban Huawei 5g devices, Reuters reported. Spark New Zealand, a New Zealand telecom operator, said in a statement Tuesday that the director of the communications security service (gcsb) of the New Zealand government rejected the company's proposal to use Huawei 5g devices, citing "significant risks to national security " Geng Shuang, a spokesman for China's foreign ministry, said Wednesday that China is seriously concerned about the relevant reports. Huawei said in a stat查询六开彩开奖结果 ement Wednesday that it has taken note of Spark's statement. "Huawei will learn more about the situation. For any concerns related to Huawei, we will actively communicate and find appropriate solutions." Spark was asked to stop using Huawei's 5g equipment ahead of the New Zealand government, the New Zealand Herald said Tuesday. The statement said that gcsb's decision means spark will not be able to implement the proposal to use Huawei equipment in the proposed 5g network. The company expressed disappointment at the decision, but believed that it would not affect the company's plan to start 5g network before April 2121. The New Zealand Herald said the decision was quite different from the previous position of the New Zealand government, which had been encouraging cooperation between its telecom operators and Huawei. "The decision to ban Huawei will seriously damage the relationship with China," the New Zealand Herald said in a comment Tuesday, adding that it was strange and ugly for a company to announce the government's decision.
