Huawei on Blacklist – level 2

20-11-2019 15:00

Some people worry that Chinese companies like Huawei can be dangerous for the security of the US.

There are many things which are not clear about Huawei, such as  its relation to the Chinese state . Huawei is not a state company, but it is possible that the  Chinese state has an influence on it.

There were checks of Huawei’s products which showed some problems. However, there is no real evidence that Huawei’s products are dangerous.

Some countries put Huawei on a blacklist. This means that they think that  Huawei can be dangerous. Huawei is one of the main companies which could prepare the new wireless network for the whole  world;  therefore, security is very important.

Difficult words: relation (a connection), state (a government), influence (an effect), blacklist (an official list of people or things that are dangerous or can be dangerous).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
