“Japanese government: temporarily not participating in the initiative of the US” clean network

According to the news on Jiwei Net, according to the Yomiuri Shimbun report, several Japanese government officials revealed on the 15th that the Japanese government has informed the US that it will temporarily not participate in the “5G Clean Networks” initiative promoted by the Trump administration. However, if security concerns arise, Japan will cooperate with the United States to take countermeasures.

In August, the US government proposed to exclude products from Chinese companies such as Huawei and ZTE in five areas, including 5G networks, mobile applications, submarine cables, and cloud computing. This initiative is also called “5G Clean Networks”. The 5G clean network is jointly established by many countries and enterprises, and Washington is currently seeking the participation of other countries.

On the 6th of this month, U.S. Secretary of State Pompeo mentioned the above plan in a meeting in Tokyo with Japanese Foreign Minister Mogi.

However, it is reported that the Japanese side said: “Cannot join the framework that excludes specific countries.” This expresses Japan’s position. However, if the current plan of the United States is changed, the two sides will resume discussions.

It is worth mentioning that Japanese media pointed out that in the field of 5G, the Japanese government has actually excluded the Chinese communications equipment giant Huawei in an anonymous form, and other fields will not have security risks like 5G.
