If Huawei is banned in Europe China may fight Nokia and Ericsson

According to the Wall Street Journal, people familiar with the matter are thinking about China considering retaliation against European telecom equipment manufacturers Nokia and Ericsson. The European Union has banned Huawei from using 5G networks, similar to the United States and the United Kingdom.

Britain last week ordered telecom operators not to purchase 5G components from Huawei by the end of this year. By 2027, all existing devices will be phased out of the Chinese telecom giant from 5G networks.

Swedish Ericsson and Finnish Nokia are the direct beneficiaries of the American campaign against Huawei.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the Chinese Ministry of Commerce is investigating export control measures to prevent Nokia and Ericsson from shipping Chinese products to other countries.

A source told the newspaper: If European countries contact Chinese suppliers and deny them access to the fifth generation network, revenge will be the worst case that Beijing can use.

The European Union has yet to recommend a ban on the use of Huawei, but the European Union has issued a so-called "toolkit" of security standards that member states should use when using suppliers at high risk in building 5G networks of focus.

The newspaper (The Observer) reported that Britain secretly informed Huawei that part of its ban on 5G networks was "political" after US President (Donald Trump) put great pressure on him.

In the days leading up to the controversial announcement last Tuesday, there was intense debate between the government and government officials on the one hand, and secret contacts between Huawei executives on the other hand.
