COPENHAGEN (Reuters) – Chinese telecom equipment maker Huawei is confident some European telecoms firms will choose it to provide 5G technology for their core networks, the firm’s chief representative to the EU, Abraham Liu, told Reuters on Friday.

Shenzhen-based Huawei is at the centre of a spat between China and the U.S. with the latter saying the company’s 5G technology could be used as a backdoor spy channel for Beijing.
Huawei has denied the claims and countered the charges by saying the U.S. itself has a long track record of modifying digital products to collect intelligence.
Speaking to reporters in Copenhagen, Liu said he was confident European operators would pick Huawei as a provider of technology for their so-called core networks where sensitive data is processed.
