United States Senators Marco Rubio and Mark Warner have reportedly told Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to ban Huawei from taking part in deploying the nation's 5G mobile networks. According to a report by Reuters, Rubio and Warner cited "grave concerns" about using 5G equipment from the Chinese technology giant due to potential danger to US networks. "While Canada has strong telecommunications security safeguards in place, we have serious concerns that such safeguards are inadequate given what the United States and other allies know about Huawei," Rubio and Warner said in a letter to Trudeau. However, it last month denied similar reports that the Indian government had excluded it from taking part in joint 5G trials, saying it is currently proposing a set of solutions to support the government's requirements for a nationwide 5G rollout. "Huawei is an active participant in India's growing 5G ecosystem," Huawei told ZDNet.
