Huawei is funded by Chinese security agencies according to the CIA

A source with the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) of the US declares that the Chinese telecom Huawei is funded by the Chinese communist government and has been tasked with directives to serve state interests.

Today, The Times asserts that the CIA has told United Kingdom intelligence officials that Huawei has received funding from the Chinese state security, including the People's Liberation Army, the National Security Commission and a "third branch" of the intelligence network of the Chinese State. This allegation has reportedly been passed on to officials in the UK, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, joining past accusations directed at the Chinese company.

The funding allegation is the most serious claim linking the world's largest telecoms...

Huawei said in a statement that the so-called MH5000 module is based on the Balong 5000 5G chip which it launched in January.

"Huawei does not comment on unsubstantiated allegations backed up by zero evidence from anonymous sources", a representative from Huawei told The Times.

The CIA has accused Huawei of being funded by Chinese state security.

Huawei is the world's second-largest phone manufacturer by volume, but it has struggled to make a dent in the U.S., partly because of concerns expressed by the government, including the FBI, CIA, NSA, the Federal Communications Commission and House Intelligence Committee.

Authorities in the United States are probing Huawei for alleged sanctions violations.

The report comes after earlier this month US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo warned that Washington may scrap cooperation with some "important strategic partners" who use Huawei Technologies Co Ltd systems.

She denies wrongdoing, and her father has previously said that the arrest was "politically motivated".

Another leader Chinese technology company, ZTE Corp., has also been at the center of similar controversies in the United States. The sanctions were lifted after ZTE paid $1.4 billion in penalties.

Earlier this week Reuters reported that the United States will push its allies at a meeting in Prague next month to adopt shared security and policy measures that will make it more hard for Huawei to dominate 5G telecommunications networks.
