India’s 5G trials without Chinese companies a sovereign decision: US

India’s recent move to allow 5G trials without Chinese companies Huawei and ZTE is a “sovereign” one, US State Department spokesperson Ned Price said. “We’re deeply concerned about…dangers of installing networks with equipment that can be…potentially controlled by the PRC (People’s Republic of China),” he added. In 2020, the US designated Huawei and ZTE as “national security threats”.
