On January 17, Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Zhao Lijian answered questions at a regular press conference.

Q: Kishore Mahbubani, a former Singaporean diplomat, recently said that a British company executive said that the British side had placed intelligence agents inside Huawei to conduct a "thorough inspection" and confirm that There was no threat from Huawei. But a few months later, Britain "capitulated" under American pressure. British officials have so far made no comment. What is China's comment?

A: I have noted relevant reports. Like everyone else, I would like to hear the explanation from the relevant British side.

I have also noted recent comments in the British media that the UK's decision to "ban" Huawei has greatly delayed the UK's 5G development goals. Oliver Dowden, minister without portfolio and then Minister of State for Digitisation, Culture, Media and Sport, said banning Huawei equipment would delay 5G construction in the UK by two to three years. According to Oxford Economics, restricting access to the UK's 5G infrastructure market for key equipment suppliers such as Huawei would increase the cost of network deployment by 9-29 per cent over the next 10 years. Some people and forces in the UK are tempted to join a country out of political self-interest, generalizing the concept of national security and suppressing specific Chinese companies, while making their own people suffer the bitter consequences of not being able to access 5G technology.
