Huawei in Russia – level 2

12-06-2019 07:00

Countries around the world are working to build 5G networks. China’s Huawei is one of the few companies which makes 5G equipment.

The USA banned Huawei because the American government sees it as a threat to its security. On the other hand, Russia made a deal with Huawei that it is going to build a 5G network in Russia.

When the Chinese President Xi Jinping visited Russia, he finalised the deal with Putin. They made many deals, and the total worth of the deals is more than $20 billion.

Difficult words: equipment (technology, machines), deal (a plan to work together on something), threat (a danger).
