A senior member of Huawei’s staff must ask British lawmakers next week about its role in the next generation 5G telecommunications network, Parliament said.
The US alleged that Beijing’s Huawei equipment could be used for espionage operations, and Washington had asked the allies to close the company from the 5G network.
The British authorities also expressed concern about safety but said they could deal with risks and not see evidence of espionage. Huawei has repeatedly denied the allegations against him.
John Suffolk, an employee of Huawei’s Global Cyber Security and Privacy, will appear before the UK Science and Technology Committee on Monday to answer questions about “possible security risks associated with 5G communication,” the parliament said.
