On the 23rd the Australian government banned the companies on the mainland Huawei and ZTE from supplying 5G mobile network equipment due to national security problems. The spokesperson for the Chinese Foreign Ministry, Lu Wei, said that the movement of the Australian side was "man-made obstacles" and "discriminatory practices", and the Chinese side expressed its serious concern.
In response to the announcement by the Australian government to ban Huawei from participating in the construction of 5G networks, it stated in its statement that it does not want to be involved in the construction of foreign governments, particularly those affected by foreign governments with different Australian legal systems. In the afternoon of the 23rd, Lu said at a regular press conference at the Foreign Office that he had taken note of the relevant statement and expressed serious concern about the attitude of the Australian government.
He also said that the Chinese government has always encouraged companies to conduct foreign economic cooperation on the basis of compliance with international rules and local laws. The essence of cooperation between Chinese and Australian companies is mutually beneficial.
Lu also said that the Australian side should facilitate cooperation between the two countries, which is not only in line with the interests of Chinese companies, but also in the interests of Australian companies and consumers. The Australian side should not use various excuses to artificial barriers and to apply discriminatory practices. Urge the Australian party to abandon ideological prejudices and create a level playing field for Chinese companies active in Australia. "

According to the Financial Times, the share of Huawei in the 4G network market in Australia is as high as 55%, but in recent years, Huawei equipment products have repeatedly transferred "security concerns". The US federal government has ordered the ban on the US Department of Defense and the country in 2017. The Ministry of Security has purchased and used Huawei's telecom equipment from Huawei and ZTE to use Huawei products. The federal institutions at all levels are strictly forbidden this year to disable or remove the telecommunications products from Chinese companies.
For Australia's ban on technology giant Huawei to participate in 5G network construction, the Australian Huawei branch has officially issued a statement confirming that the Australian government has announced that it will become a supplier of 5G network equipment.
