Speaking at the Munich Security Conference, Pelosi said she was going to speak with “candor” to European allies about the dangers of allowing a company with connections to the Chinese government to build global information networks.

“I tell you, unequivocally and without any hesitation, be very careful when you go down this path unless you want to end up with a society like China,” she said.

US claims Huawei can secretly access carrier backdoors .
The US has been trying to persuade its allies to ditch Huawei for a while, but it has been curiously shy about providing evidence to support its case. However, some of that evidence appears to be coming to light -- although it's still not certain there's a real threat. Officials talking to the Wall Street Journal have claimed that Huawei can "covertly" access phone networks worldwide using backdoors meant for law enforcement. While manufacturers are often required to design their gear in a way that prevents them from gaining access without a carrier's permission, Huawei supposedly maintains that access without the carriers being any the wiser.
