German Interior Minister: without Huawei, the construction of German 5G may be delayed by 5 to 10 years

According to media reports, the German Bundestag held negotiations on whether to allow Huawei to participate in 5G construction on the 16th. Subsequently, German Interior Minister Seehofer (Horst Seehofer) said in an interview with German media Frankfurt on the 18th that without Huawei's participation, Germany's 5G construction may be delayed for 5 to 10 years. "I object to excluding a product from the market just because something is possible," Seehofer said, arguing that Huawei should not be excluded from the German 5G network.

 

At the same time, he said, Germany must guard against espionage and sabotage and can establish additional security networks to ensure the security of the system. But if Huawei is excluded, the construction of Germany's 5G network could be delayed by five to 10 years. "I don't think Germany can build a 5G network in the short term without Huawei's participation." Seehofer added that no German company currently has the capacity to build a 5G network, while only two companies in Europe are likely to do so.

Seehofer also said he was "completely in agreement" with German Chancellor Angela Merkel on issues involving Huawei. Merkel is unanimously open on Huawei. In an interview with the Financial Times on the 15th of this month, she said that Germany should strengthen security requirements for all telecom suppliers and diversify them, "so that we do not rely on one company in 5G, but I think it is wrong to simply exclude a company."
