Germany Defining Own Security Standards Despite U.S. Threat, Merkel Says

Germany will define its own security standards for a new 5G mobile network, Chancellor Angela Merkel said, after Washington said it would scale back data-sharing with Berlin if China’s Huawei was allowed to participate. Merkel’s conservatives chafed at what some saw as a threat by Washington, although Germany’s transatlantic coordinator emphasized that Berlin shared U.S. concerns about Huawei’s ability to meet high security standards for the new network.
