Should the ban on Chinese networking hardware go into full effect, the statement indicates that there will be great pressure on Europe to follow suit in avoiding the use of Chinese cellular equipment.

But the Canadian government said it is now evaluating the risk of using Huawei's products.

The UK government's report in July 2018 concluded that it has "only limited assurance" that Huawei's broadband and mobile infrastructure equipment poses no threat to national security, adding that "significant work" was needed to tackle the concerns.

Italy's industry minister on Thursday denied a report that Italy would ban Huawei and ZTE Corp, another Chinese telecoms giant, from playing a role in building its 5G network.

Huawei has warned MPs it could take up to five years to resolve issues in its devices raised by United Kingdom security officials last year.

The United States froze Huawei out of its network infrastructure previous year, claiming that the company was adding backdoor access on behalf of the Chinese government.

The positive report came despite Trump reportedly not following a diet and exercise plan set for him after last year's physical. Conley said Trump did not undergo any procedures requiring sedation or anesthesia, meaning he did not have a colonoscopy.

In a letter to Norman Lamb, chairman of the committee, Ryan Ding, president of Huawei's carrier business, said: "Enhancing our software engineering capabilities is like replacing components on a high-speed train in motion".

The Public Affairs Director, Huawei, Austin Zhang stated that there is no valid reason for the Polish government to keep the company out of its upcoming 5G network development.

MWC is expected to feature several telecom security meetings, and a second industry source said the United States is sending an interagency delegation of at least 20 officials and staffers.

"National security is a priority and if any critical issues emerged - which to date have not - the ministry would assess whether or not to take measures".

Huawei is also willing to accept European government supervision, Reuters said. "Because technical issues can always be resolved through the right solutions while ideological issue cannot", states Huawei chief representative Abraham Liu in his Chinese New Year speech.

Reuters reported exclusively on January 30 that the European Commission was considering proposals that would ban Huawei from 5G networks, but that work was at an early stage. As POLITICO first reported last August, it was originally paired with a second order formalizing an interagency team that reviews foreign entities' telecom investment requests.
