China is entirely to blame for the United States for failed plans between the United Kingdom and Chinese technology company Huawei for plans to develop 5G.
Chinese Ambassador to the United Kingdom Liu Xiaoming said London’s decision to cancel pre-agreed plans to give Huawei a leading role in their 5G development “seriously poisons” UK-China relations, Sky News reported.
Liu said the United Kingdom was trying to interfere in the Chinese government’s internal affairs by openly condemning the latest national security laws established in Hong Kong and their suspension of the extradition treaty.

Chinese officials are not wrong in blaming the US government for changing the heart of the United Kingdom.
The British representatives said that their decision was largely based on US pressure and sanctions, which made it difficult for countries to ensure the safety of the equipment being developed.
The United States has also threatened to sharpen intelligence sharing if the United Kingdom continues with Huawei, citing security concerns about potential Chinese surveillance and surveillance capabilities.
“Pompeo claims that by excluding Huawei, the countries are joining the ranks of the ‘clean countries,'” Wenbin said on Thursday. “The so-called ‘clean pages’ he spoke of are nothing but a code name for double standards.”

The United Kingdom, along with the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Latvia, Poland, Romania and Sweden, heeded Pompeo’s warnings of potential security threats and banned all Huawei products from future 5G networks.
“Our vigorous diplomacy has helped lead to an international awakening to the threat of the CCP (Chinese Communist Party).
