"“For such serious decisions like a ban, you need proof,” Arne Schoenbohm, told news weekly Spiegel, confirming that the BSI had no such evidence." This coming from Germany's BSI chief speaks volumes. Germany, is by far the most significant market in the EU. Unfortunately, you would never see this in any of the five eyes news media.

Canada may or may not how to US pressure is difficult to say after the trade war dispute, but other than a couple of countries banning them Huawei will still be installing $100s of billions worth of 5G networks around the world .
