They will be subject to both a technical and political test, the latter supposedly to determine Huawei’s intrinsic trustworthiness.
Since pretty much all countries that want to stay in America’s good books deem Huawei untrustworthy merely by being Chinese, it’s hard to see how Huawei could pass the political test.
It looks like German security agencies aren’t al all keen on Huawei and the government seems to be setting the stage for them to make the final call on Huawei kit.
Both countries presumably hope this offers their best chance of retaining some goodwill with China despite banning Huawei.
All this stuff isn’t set to be made into law for another month or so and the German government has yet to formally announce anything.
