No Restrictions on Huawei in Brazil
China's Huawei will not be restricted in Brazil where plans are under way to launch a 5G network, the country's vice-president said Monday, defying US pressure to shun the firm.
Huawei, a leader in next-generation 5G wireless technology, is barricaded from building 5G networks in the United States over concerns about its links to the government in Beijing and possible security threats.
The administration of President Donald Trump is attempting to convince its friends to do exactly as them.
But Hamilton Mourao, who is viewed a moderate voice in President Jair Bolsonaro's government, revealed to reporters Brazil's ties with its biggest trade partner China could not be "disregarded." "There is no veto of Huawei in Brazil. Huawei has been here for 10 years," Mr Mourao said.
An auction of 5G spectrum is believed to be held next year. Mr Bolsonaro railed against China during last year's election campaign, but has altered his tune since taking position in January.
Brazil has sought for to keep itself from the ongoing US-China trade war in an attempt to stay onside with both countries. "We are experiencing a moment of instability, of competition between countries, a return to a certain protectionism," Mr Mourao said. Brazil, he added, has to adopt a position that is both "flexible and pragmatic."
