Australian government officials advised India to ban Chinese technology maker Huawei from supplying parts for a roll-out of a high-speed telecommunications network, Australian newspapers reported on Tuesday.
Officials from anti-cyberespionage body the Australian Signals Directorate (ASD) were asked about an Australian ban on using the Huawei to build 5G networks when a delegation visited New Delhi last week, The Australian Financial Review and The Australian reported.
“Indian officials were keen to get an understanding of how the Turnbull government arrived at the decision to ban Huawei, and multiple discussions have been held over the matter,” the AFR said, referring to a move led former prime minister Malcolm Turnbull in 2018.
The delegation last week, led by Australian ambassador for cyber affairs Tobias Feakin, “explained in detail why high-risk vendors had been banned from Australia’s 5G network,” The Australian reported.
India also consulted the US on its Huawei ban, the newspaper added. Australia in 2018 became the first country to ban Huawei from supplying equipment for a 5G mobile network, citing national security risks, a move the Chinese company criticised as being “politically motivated”.
