Huawei, since the US trade ban the company has faced some rejections in three countries so far in terms of their 5G equipment. New Zealand, Australia, and the United States are the countries that have banned Huawei from operating the 5th generation of mobile networks in their country.
However recently Russia has just offered Huawei a contract to develop and launch 5G technology for them. Despite the US warning other countries to reject Huawei’s technology equipment. After Russia, Brazil will now be the second country to publicly go against the US request.
A recent report has indicated that the Brazilian Vice President Hamilton Mourao stated to journalists that the Latin America country has no issue with Huawei’s 5G technology equipment. According to Mourao, Brazil will not put an embargo on Huawei from operating its fifth generation of wireless technology in the country. More so Mourao also stated that they have trust with the Chinese company and consequently they also need their telecom technology.
