Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Hua Chunying’s Regular Press Conference on December 5, 2019.
Spokesperson of the US Department of State said in a statement on December 4 that allowing Chinese telecommunications firms such as Huawei and ZTE anywhere in a country’s 5G networks would present critical risks to the privacy, human rights, and security of its citizens. The United States urges all countries, including partners and allies, to adopt national security policies that would prevent untrusted vendors from accessing any part of their future 5G networks.
Spokesperson Hua Chunying responded,” The so-called ‘security trap’ cooked up by the US sounds very serious, but actually it is nothing but absurdity. If the US logic stands, everything made in China is dangerous. Then are Americans to stop wearing shoes and clothes made in China, for they, too, may pose a security threat?”
