The European Commission will urge the European Union countries next week to share additional data to handle cybersecurity threats and risks related to the 5G network of Huawei and will ignore the United States calls to impose ban over Chinese giant telecom Huawei technologies, according to four people familiar with the matter has reported on Friday.

According to Reuters news reports, European digital chief Andrus Ansip will be presenting the recommendations on Tuesday, while the guidance doesn’t have any legal force, it will be carrying a political weight eventually leading to national legislation in the EU nations.

The US has long lobbied Europe to ban Huawei tech, stating the threat of espionage by the Chinese government using Huawei equipment.

However, Huawei and the Chinese government have repeatedly dismissed such allegations levelled against them by the United States and allies.

Ansip will tell the EU nations to make use of tools set out under its directive over information systems and security of the network, or the NIS directive which was adopted in 2016 and the recently approved Cybersecurity Act, the people said.

For example, the member states would exchange information and coordinate over the impact assessment studies on the security risks and certification for internet-connected devices and 5G equipment.

The European Commission will not call for a European ban on the global market leader Huawei, resting it to the EU to further decide on national security grounds.

One of the sources said, “It is a recommendation to enhance exchanges on the security assessment of digital critical infrastructure.”

The EC said the whole recommendation would stress upon a common EU nations approach towards the security risks to Huawei 5G network.
