China may impose sanctions against Nokia and Ericsson

The Chinese authorities are considering the possibility of introducing restrictive measures against European telecommunications companies Nokia and Ericsson in the event that European Union member states, following the United States and Great Britain, begin to impede the use of Chinese Huawei equipment to create 5G wireless networks. This was reported on Monday by The Wall Street Journal , citing its own sources.

According to them, the Ministry of Commerce of China is discussing the introduction of export restrictions for the Finnish Nokia and the Swedish Ericsson, which will entail obstacles to sending abroad their products manufactured in China. Another source said that these measures will be applied only in the event of a worse scenario, in which European countries will prohibit the use of equipment from Chinese suppliers to create 5G.

July 14, the British government announced that it intends to abandon Huawei equipment in the national communications infrastructure. From December 31, British operators will not be able to purchase 5G products from this manufacturer, and by 2027 it will be replaced by analogues of other enterprises. Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Hua Chuning promised that Beijing will firmly defend the interests of its national companies.

US President Donald Trump has repeatedly warned the British leadership that the cooperation of the kingdom with Huawei allegedly threatens national security. The American side also pointed out that the use of equipment by a Chinese corporation in the British communications infrastructure could impede the exchange of information through the Five Eyes intelligence alliance.
