french government will not ban huawei still recommends using other suppliers

The United States banned its companies from using Huawei equipment, but it’s struggling to make its allies follow suit. Following the United Kingdom that allowed “high-risk companies” to provide equipment, now France said it will not put a total ban on the Chinese telecommunications manufacturers.

Guillaume Poupard, head of French cybersecurity agency ANSSI, revealed to the local newspaper Les Echos that they are inciting operators not currently using Huawei to stick to the status quo, while ones that are already with the Chinese giant will receive temporary authorizations.
