In bid to wall off China, VP Pence signs 5G development agreement with rock-solid ally Poland

(NationalSentinel) Vice President Mike Pence on Monday signed an agreement with Polish President Andrzej Duda in Warsaw that solidifies the two countries’ cooperation to develop 5G technology outside of China, in order to protect future U.S. and allied networks from infiltration and espionage.



The deal comes as security concerns about state-aligned Chinese firm Huawei, the world’s largest manufacturer of network infrastructure equipment, rise among members of the Trump administration, the Pentagon, and the U.S. intelligence community.

As The Epoch Times reports, days before the agreement was signed, an unnamed U.S. official said it was one of the White House’s priorities.

“This is an incredibly important signal of the strength of our cooperation between the United States and Poland against what may be one of the preeminent, I guess I’ll just call it a threat, in the coming years,” the official said on Aug. 31 without specifying a company or country.

On background, the official told reporters that the Poland deal comes amid additional concerns over “a number of suppliers that have links to hostile governments.”

“It’s really not possible to contemplate a core network that can be protected, that’s contrary to the nature of the 5G network. And so having the kind of framework for 5G cooperation … is going to allow us to address all of those issues,” the official said.

The new agreement supports a number of principles devised by cybersecurity officials from dozens of countries at a recent summit in Prague, Czech Republic. The purpose of the summit was to find ways to counter future threats from next-gen mobile networks.

The deal also comes as the U.S. and China remain locked in an escalating trade war that has seen both sides target each others’ imports with rising tariffs.

Pence, who made the trip so Trump could remain in the U.S. and keep better tabs on Hurricane Dorian, said the agreement would “set a vital example for the rest of Europe.”

U.S. intelligence has implored European allies to shun Huawei products and network development over concerns that Beijing’s spy services will use it for espionage purposes, but so far, most European allies have balked.
