New Zealand Leader Says No Final Decision on Using Huawei

Monday, 18 February 2019 10:37 PM

WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) — New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern says no final decision has been made on whether Huawei equipment can be used in a planned network upgrade.

New Zealand's international spy agency in November stopped mobile company Spark from using the equipment in its planned 5G upgrade, saying it posed a "significant network security risk."

But in a television interview Tuesday with Newshub, Ardern said Spark had the option of mitigating the spy agency's concerns. Ardern said it was important to note there had been no final decision, and "now the ball is in Spark's court."

Her comments came after China accused the U.S. of trying to block the country's industrial development, and British media reported that U.K. intelligence agencies found it's possible to limit the security risks of using Huawei.
