- Pelosi: "Huawei was created by copying US technologies"
Munich - Nancy Pelosi's appearance at the Munich Security Conference was particularly tiring against China - especially the technology group Huawei . Even if the front woman of the US Democrats with US President Donald Trump is mostly crossed, it is agreed on this point: "We want to put Huawei on the black list," said Pelosi on Friday. It is a great danger to put the power of the new fast 5G mobile communications standard in one hand - namely that of Huawei.
Pelosi shoots against China: freedom of information at 5G with Huawei on board not possible
US House Speaker Nancy #Pelosi attacks #European countries that are embracing China's #Huawei to build # 5G mobile networks at @MunSecConf. She says allowing Huawei to build 5G networks is allowing "the most insidious form of aggression" from an autocracy. #China #USA- HJ May (@HJ_Mai) February 14, 2020
When asked by a Chinese woman how it could be that the USA was afraid of Huawei, where US companies like Microsoft had been active in China for many years, Pelosi made it clear: “Huawei was created by copying US technologies The US , however, did not want to copy China. "We don't want to threaten Tibet ," said Pelosi. The United States knew exactly how much power a technology like 5G had. Freedom of information is not possible with Huawei on board.
Pelosi: 5G must not be dominated by a country "that does not share our values"
It was absolutely necessary to create an “international model” for the 5G infrastructure . Freedom must prevail on the Internet. "We need a democratic information superhighway, not an autocratic one," said Pelosi. "You shouldn't give all the power to an organ." It was the "most severe form of aggression" when 5G was dominated by a country "that does not share our values ". In Germany, too, the use of Huawei to expand the mobile network has recently been the subject of heated debate.
Pelosi shows humor: "Don't be against something just because President Trump is for it."
The fact that Pelosi is in the same horn with Trump - as is now the case with 5G - is surprising insofar as the US President recently made fun of Pelosi on Twitter, among other things. The 79-year-old Nancy Pelosi has been in politics for decades and is considered the poster child for good political style. Apparently she also has a sense of humor about Trump: she always tells her parliamentarians: "Don't be against something just because President Trump is in favor of it."
Federal President Frank-Walter Steinmeier also sent a warning to Donald Trump at the security conference.
