France will not prevent the use of technology from the Chinese company Huawei in the creation of mobile communication systems of the fifth-generation (5G) on its territory but intends to protect its strategic interests. This was stated on Tuesday by the Minister of Economy and Finance of France, Bruno Le Maire, on the radio station France Inter.
вЂњThere is no global ban on Huawei's participation in creating 5G in France,вЂќ he said. The Finance Minister noted that вЂњ France does not prohibit companies from investing in the development of 5G, but intends to defend its strategic interests, which means protecting French businesses in a vulnerable position.вЂќ
вЂњWe monitor compliance with national security. France's position on this issue is clear and balanced, вЂњ Le Maire said.
