India’s recent decision to launch 5G trials without Chinese companies Huawei and TE DTE is called the US sovereign decision. A US State Department official said the United States was deeply concerned about the dangers of China establishing networks with disruptive or controlling devices. “It was a sovereign decision of the Government of India, so we believe you should take any response from the Government of India on this,” US Foreign Department spokesman Ned Price said at a daily press conference Tuesday.
“But I can say more broadly that we are concerned about the dangers of network devices that the PRC (People’s Republic of Chain) can control or avoid,” he said. Allowing for untrusted telecom providers such as Huawei or ZTE involves national security, privacy and human rights risks.
The 5G test was approved by the telecommunications department on May 4, though no company uses Chinese technology. Reliance Jio, Bharti Airtel, Vodafone and MTNL have approved the applications. None of these companies are using the technology of Chinese companies.

The list of telecom gear makers approved by the Department of Telecommunications for 5G testing includes locally developed Ericsson, Nokia, Samsung, C-Dot and Reliance Jio technologies. This means that Chinese companies will not be part of 5G trials. This move by the Telecom Department indicates that the central government can prevent Chinese companies from participating in the 5G telecom services that will be launched in the country. China has expressed regret over the government’s decision not to allow its companies to participate in the 5G trial in India.
