It's believed Huawei and ZTE aren't specifically named in the executive order, but the companies would obviously fall under the category of Chinese telecom equipment providers.
British authorities stress they have never found any evidence of Chinese state espionage in reviews of Huawei equipment at a special company laboratory overseen by intelligence and industry officials.
Sometime in the next few weeks, Donald Trump is expected to sign an executive order that would ban equipment made by Chinese telecoms from United States wireless networks, sources told Politico. Allegedly, Huawei's 5G infrastructure equipment can come with backdoors, allowing the Chinese government to spy on communications of any country using Huawei's gear.
Nevertheless, US officials are anxious that China could one day compel Huawei to eavesdrop on its customers.
The government now has no own information on whether the Chinese company could be a security threat, Altmaier was quoted as saying, adding that the Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) had been activated.
Any Western country allowing Huawei Technologies Co. or other Chinese equipment to be used in critical infrastructure projects will face the risk of USA countermeasures, the US envoy to the European Union said.
On top of all this, the USA recently uncovered evidence of Huawei trying to commit fraud and intellectual property theft.
USA charges of stealing technology and violating sanctions on Iran have since been issued against the company, sparking new tensions in relations between the United States and China. Huawei denies any wrongdoing.
Huawei has been under great scrutiny in recent times, but remember that ZTE was also heavily put under the microscope not long before.
Germany's federal cybersecurity agency is investigating whether China's Huawei Technologies could be a security threat after warnings from other countries, the Funke group of newspapers reported on Friday, citing Economy Minister Peter Altmaier.
Implementing a ban might also be easier said than done. Germany's Deutsche Telekom AG has warned that Europe would fall behind the USA and China in 5G with such a move, according to people familiar with an internal briefing paper from the company.
