[Compile Lu Yongshan/Comprehensive Report] According to Reuters, the U.S. House of Representatives will vote next week on the "Countering Untrusted Telecommunications Abroad Act" (Countering Untrusted Telecommunications Abroad Act), which is supported by cross-party parties. Threatening Chinese telecom giants Huawei and ZTE, the bill requires the U.S. State Department to report on the use of telecommunications equipment or services by companies such as Huawei and ZTE in their 5G networks by U.S. NATO allies and other countries.
"We need to redouble our efforts to protect our national security and interests, help our allies take important steps for their own safety, and stand firm in defense of fundamental rights," said Rep. Susan Wild, a Democrat who sponsored the bill.

The bill also requires U.S. listed companies to disclose whether they have contracted Huawei or ZTE to provide relevant telecommunications services covered by the bill; and requires the U.S. State Department to submit a report on the telecommunications vulnerabilities of U.S. embassies and consulates abroad, and instructs the State Department to confirm Critical Telecommunications Infrastructure Program to Advance U.S. National Security.
The U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) last November ordered a ban on the purchase of new telecommunications equipment from Huawei and ZTE, saying they posed an "unacceptable risk" to U.S. national security.
In this regard, the Chinese embassy in the United States stated that the FCC has once again abused state power to maliciously attack Chinese telecom operators without any factual basis.
Huawei has repeatedly denied allegations of wrongdoing and said the U.S. government has illegally and unreasonably targeted the company.
Washington is grappling with China's tech giants, fearing that Beijing could use them to spy on Americans.
Washington has been pressuring allies for years not to use equipment from Huawei or ZTE in 5G networks, or to remove equipment from the two companies from existing networks.
