Huawei welcomes EU report on 5G networks, ready to work to make them safe

BERLIN, Oct 9 (Reuters) - Huawei Technologies on Wednesday welcomed a European Union strategy statement on 5G mobile networks, saying it was ready to work with its partners to ensure they are secure.

"This exercise is an important step towards developing a common approach to cybersecurity and delivering safe networks for the 5G era," a Huawei spokesman said.

"We are pleased to note that the EU delivered on its commitment to take an evidence-based approach, thoroughly analysing risks rather than targeting specific countries or actors." (Reporting by Douglas Busvine Editing by Michelle Martin)
