joins the us australia new zealand japan and taiwan in banning hallways products in their 5 g. networks canada is considering a ban while pressure is also being put on germany that the reports. a u. turn by the u.k. government but one it says was driven by practicalities not politics announcing the total ban on huawei kitted britain's planned 5 g. network by 2027 the culture minister said u.s. sanctions blocking quote ways use of american lycra chips would make the company less reliable in future the best way to secure our networks is for operators to stop using new affected huawei to quit and to build the u.k.'s future 5 g. networks said to be clear from the end of this year telecoms operators must not buy any 5 g. equipment from a while away and once the telecom security bill is passed it will be illegal for them to do so. the move against way will please washington which has been
pressuring the u.k. to act the company had expected it it's warning u.k. mobile users will lose out in a statement it says regrettably our future in the u.k. has become politicized this is about u.s. trade policy and not security over the past 20 years while way has focused on building a better connected u.k. as a responsible business we will continue to support our customers as we always have done. the british government hopes the announcement will convince other suppliers to enter the market and fill the gap meanwhile the china skeptics among boris johnson's conservative party are largely happy they say national security must trump worries about an already damaged relationship and relations with strained over hong kong where china has behaved disgracefully so. anyone taking it with the state in a golden era of relations with china is clearly wrong but so be it i think this is the right decision and we should be calm we want to continue trading with continue
commercial relations with the chinese but we've got to be perma the same time it's not clear how quickly or how angrily china will react to britain's decision to get rid of quote way kit but other countries will be watching carefully as they to deliberate on whether to ban the company. al-jazeera london let's cross to our white house correspondent kimberly halkett kimberly the u.k.'s previous attitude to the highway being able to be part of the 5 g. network actually being a cause of tension between the u.s. and the u.k. so i guess in the white house no doubt will be welcoming this decision. welcoming it as certainly this is the product of a long lobbying effort that we've seen by this white house urging u.s. allies to heed its warning about huawei the concern being that it is really just a form of domestic surveillance conducting backdoor espionage on unknowing users
now the u.s. president has called a press conference for 21 g.m.t. it is rumored to be about further action against china although that has not been confirmed by the white house having said that the u.s. administration has taken a number of actions against china with respect to its concerns about some of its behaviors not only has it rejected territorial claims that it has made in the south china sea but also the u.s. has sanctioned chinese officials for its treatment of chinese muslims in the u.s. congress in a rare show of bipartisanship in recent weeks has passed legislation concerns over hong kong's national security law so there's been a number of steps taken against china while way is just one of its many concerns here in the u.s. shared by u.s. lawmakers again sort of a rare point of agreement the house speaker nancy pelosi a democrat we should point out called the 5 g.
network an insidious form of aggression by an autocratic government that doesn't share u.s. values and we should also remind our viewers that it was back in february that the u.s. justice department took action against wall way accusing it of racketeering so we know that the national security adviser is in europe for 3 days of meetings to discuss the concerns about china about domestic surveillance of various nations so that it appears that this effort to kind of get some sort of global agreement on wall way is gaining some traction again the united states considering a number of actions it has been promising further action for a number of days many wondering whether or not those will include potentially banning apps like tic toc as well as we chat which the united states is accusing china once again of using to conduct information warfare can really help with the latest on that from the white house kimberly thank you. well meanwhile china is accusing the united states of trying to stir up trouble in the south china sea
that's after secretary of state mike pump a.o. said beijing's claims to the region are completely unlawful well china claims about 90 percent of the south china sea including ownership of the spratly islands which is this putrid by the philippines vietnam and others the scrubber show is claimed by china and the philippines and that this agreement escalated 8 years ago when the philippine navy a pretend that 8 mainland chinese fishing vessels in the area when hay has more now from bangkok. in several areas of the south china sea islands at holes in reefs have been transformed china claims almost the entire area and for years has been militarizing the islands constructing remote outposts i want also claims parts of the south china sea along with several southeast asian countries including vietnam which is mounted the strongest challenge to beijing last month the vietnamese prime
minister opened the latest southeast asian leaders summit with a strong statement on the issue without mentioning china. while the entire world is mobilizing its full force to fight against the pandemic responsible acts and violations of international laws are still taking place affecting the environment of security and stability in several regions including ours the statement from u.s. secretary of state mike pompei o came after the permanent court of arbitration in the hague ruled that china's claims were invalid the case was taken by the philippines but the verdict did nothing to slow china's assertiveness tensions between china and the united states have been increasing over trade coronavirus taiwan hong kong and now the south china sea. the us statement neglects the history and facts about the issues about the south china sea it breaches the u.s. government's open commitment to not take any position on the sovereignty of the south china sea it violates an distorts international law it is stirring up
territorial disputes in the south china sea which is very irresponsible. in recent weeks both militaries conducted exercises in the area with the us saying repeatedly it wants to ensure freedom of navigation beijing suspects otherwise not only is their strategic value in the south china sea but it's one of the world's busiest shipping lanes and is believed to hold large exploitable natural resources china has continued to develop parts of the region largely unopposed militarily while the us statement doesn't necessarily signal a chain. jeannette regard it does signal a stronger stance against beijing and will increase tension during these unstable times when hey al jazeera bangkok. international court of justice in the hague has ruled in favor of qatar in a dispute with 4 arab countries that imposed
