Angela Markel who is a German Chancellor is under immense pressure from her own party as she is supposed to impose a ban on Chinese brand Huawei Technologies co. from the country’s 5G network. As per the reports, the demand is an outcome of a motion signature by around 500 of her fellow Christian Democrats who will be present at the party conference next week. They have called for alternative ways from European providers.
As asked by the men in Germany’s intelligence service and US administration, the government has recently agreed to put restrictions on Huawei that will block the components of the company from the core network but allow them in mildly sensitive areas. In Washington and Berlin, concerns are related to the risks of the relations of Huawei with the Chinese government and 5G’s susceptibility to damage and spy.
Annegret and Markel’s conflict:
CDU leader Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer is opposing the ban imposed on Huawei and approval of a motion by a majority of around 1,000 delegates would be witnessed as a vote against them. Both women, Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer and Angela Markel are under pressure after a number of quarrel policies and series of election defeats.
Huawei has cleared its part by saying that is is going to cause no sort of risk factors to infrastructure in Europe’s largest economy and the officials of the company. Huawei also said that there is no valid reason to exclude a company that has served the telecom industry for so long without any fault. The CDU party conference is scheduled to be held on November 22, 2019, and November 23, 2019. The meeting will be held at Leipzig.
