India may hold inter-ministerial talks before call on Huawei

The government plans to hold inter-ministerial consultations on network security concerns arising from Chinese telecom gear maker Huawei’s participation in field trials for 5G technology after global calls to ban the company. While the US has urged its allies to bar Huawei from 5G rollouts, Japan, Australia and New Zealand have banned its equipment and a few countries may follow suit in Europe, Huawei’s biggest market outside of China.

“There are some security concerns…but these concerns are not crystallized yet. The home ministry, department of industrial policy and promotion (DIPP), department of commerce, IT ministry and department of telecommunications (DoT) will have to sit together and discuss this before any decision is taken,” a senior government official said, requesting anonymity.
