USA congressman claims China is strong-arming India into using Huawei 5G

India will hold trials for installing 5G cellular network to companies in the coming months.

Huawei was backlisted from the U.S. administration in May citing security concerns after it accused it of stealing data and personal information.

The U.S. agency responsible for government contracts on Wednesday released an interim rule for a ban on federal purchases of telecommunications equipment from five Chinese companies, including Huawei.

China is "blackmailing" India into using Huawei for its 5G infrastructure, an influential US Congressman said on Tuesday, even as Beijing hoped that New Delhi will not succumb to any pressure from the United States.

The Trump administration has said Huawei, China's largest technology company, represents a national security threat and has been pressing allies to exclude the company from new 5G telecommunications networks.

Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying (華春瑩) said that Beijing hopes India would make an independent decision on 5G bidders.

Ministry of External Affairs did not respond to a request for comment.

Banks added that China had started "blackmailing" India into using Huawei for its 5G infrastructure. In particular, it warned that it could potentially target Indian companies operating in China in response. But firms including Infosys, TCS, Dr Reddy's Laboratories Reliance Industries and Mahindra & Mahindra have a foothold there in manufacturing, health care, financial services and outsourcing.

A potential row over Huawei could revive tensions in the broader India and China relationship just as the two sides have been making high-level efforts to ensure their long standing territorial disputes do not escalate.

The main right-wing group tied to Modi's ruling alliance has stepped up criticism of Huawei.

The NDAA restrictions are separate from the US Department of Commerce putting Huawei on a trade blacklist, following an executive order from President Donald Trump in May.

The US is engaged in a worldwide campaign to prevent Huawei from 5G infrastructure globally, as the telecommunications behemoth is now the leader in terms of developing the technology. He did not name the others, but firms such as Sweden's Ericsson Finland's Nokia and South Korea's Samsung Electronics are expected to participate.

Currently, a group of senior officials, led by the principal scientific adviser K Vijay Raghavan, is looking into whether Huawei should be allowed to participate in 5G trials in India.

"The administration has a strong commitment to defending our nation from foreign adversaries, and will fully comply with Congress on the implementation of the prohibition of Chinese telecom and video surveillance equipment, including Huawei equipment", said Jacob Wood, a spokesman for the OMB.
