Huawei has never had a national security issue: Australia chair


Huawei is the most audited, inspected, reviewed, and critiqued IT company in the world, Australian chair John Lord has said, arguing again for the Chinese technology giant to be allowed to take part in 5G build-outs across the nation. Speaking to the National Press Club in Canberra on Wednesday, Lord said that Huawei equipment has been used by telcos in Australia for almost 15 years, and there has never been a national security issue. "After every kind of inspection, audit, review, nothing sinister has been found. No wrongdoing, no criminal action or intent, no'back door', no planted vulnerability, and no'magical kill switch'," Lord said. "In fact, in our three decades as a company no evidence of any sort has been provided to justify these concerns by anyone -- ever."
