Italy government denies report it will ban Huawei, ZTE from 5G plans

The industry ministry denied on Thursday a newspaper report that it planned to ban China’s Huawei Technologies and ZTE Corp (HK:0763) from participating in the roll out of Italy’s 5G infrastructure.

“We have no intention of adopting any such initiatives,” the ministry said in a statement. It added that national security was a priority and that it would re-evaluate the situation if any critical issues emerged.

Huawei faces international scrutiny over its ties with the Chinese government and suspicion Beijing could use its technology for spying — something the company has denied./
