Beijing sharply criticized Washington after Pence called on “Iceland and other freedom-loving nations to find alternatives to essentially China’s state-based 5G operation” in a meeting with Iceland’s Prime Minister Katrin Jakobsdottir.
“This is a typical hegemonism and the politicization of economic and trade issues,” said Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang, AP reports.
American leaders are making “irresponsible remarks” and continue “abusing the concept of national security” to target Chinese companies, Geng maintained.
Washington has been pressuring its allies to stop business with the Chinese firm Huawei – the world’s second-largest smartphone manufacturer – for quite a while already.
The Trump administration claims that the company is in cahoots with the Chinese government and represents a security threat, but many are unconvinced. Germany, for example, argues there is no evidence of suspicious behavior from Huawei, and the company has expressed readiness to share its source code so that each government can “validate by themselves.”
