Canada to Ban ZTE And Huawei From 5G Network

February 8, 2023

Canada has announced that it will ban ZTE and Huawei from its 5G network, potentially further chilling relations with China. a move that aligns it with intelligence-sharing partners but risks further chilling relations with China. This is seen as a move that aligns Canada with its intelligence-sharing partners.

The rest of the Five Eyes network—the United States, Britain, Australia, and New Zealand—has already banned Huawei equipment.

For years, Canada has faced increasing pressure from allies, most notably the United States, to prohibit Huawei's 5G equipment out of concern for national security. In 2018, Canada stated that it would investigate any potential concerns raised by the technology's adoption.

But any decision was delayed after Huawei’s chief financial officer, Meng Wanzhou, was arrested in Canada on a US warrant. In a move widely seen as retaliatory, China arrested two Canadians, Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor, later charging the men with espionage.
