Merkel opens 5G network for Huawei, waives a ban on Chinese mobile phone technology (translation of German)
[Spiegel] At the insistence of the Chancellery, Berlin waives a ban on Chinese mobile phone technology. Coalition politicians criticize the decision.

Berlin, Düsseldorf. Representatives of the federal government had been debating for months, now the decision has been made: The Chinese network supplier Huawei is allowed to supply components for the entire German 5G network. According to the Handelsblatt, this is the result of the current draft on the security requirements for the telecommunications networks of the Federal Network Agency.

The resolution is to be published in the next few days. An initially discussed clause that would block Huawei's access to the market is not included in the paper.
