Concerns over Chinese involvement in 5G wireless networks
5G technology has been tested in the Slovenian seaside town of Koper as part of a larger European project funded by the European Commission.
Telecom Slovenia has already installed the technical equipment at the port in the city, and the inspection of the network is planned to continue until the end of the summer.
Chinese telecoms equipment maker Huawei on Wednesday welcomed the European Union's 5G guidelines that are likely to limit its business in Europe, but which fall short of a US call for a total ban.
"This non-biased and fact-based approach towards 5G security allows Europe to have a more secure and faster 5G network," Huawei said in a statement.
The US Ambassador in Bucharest "spoke badly about the Chinese 5G technology without any reason at all," said the Chinese Embassy's spokesman in Bucharest, Tang Fujian, in a statement released on Tuesday.
The US regulatory body has proposed rules to block the purchase by telecommunications companies of equipment from Chinese companies Huawei and ZTE and remove any of their equipment that is already available.
The Federal Communications Commission said the rules - which will be voted on November 19 - are part of an initiative to "protect the country's communications networks".
Sixth generation 6G telecommunications technologies may become available in the next 10 years. This was stated today by the founder and CEO of Huawei Ren Zhengfei in an interview with Kyodo.
"We have started research on the 6G network and in my opinion within 10 years it can be made available for practical use", he said.
