According to the Ministrys website, foreign ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin will host a regular press conference on July 23, 2020. AFP: according to French media reports, France will prohibit domestic telecom operators from buying new Huawei equipment. Can you confirm?
Wang Wenbin: French leaders such as president marcelon have repeatedly said that they will not take discriminatory measures against specific countries or enterprises on the 5g issue, let alone exclude Huawei. During the just concluded seventh China France high level economic and financial dialogue, both sides reiterated to encourage enterprises from all countries to participate in 5g network construction in accordance with the principles of marketization and security.
We hope and believe that France will keep its promise, eliminate interference, continue to adhere to the principles of market economy and free trade rules, provide an open, fair and non discriminatory business environment for Chinese enterprises including Huawei to invest in France, and effectively maintain the sound development momentum of Sino French economic and trade relations.
