Europe's position on Huawei and 5G.
No EU member state has banned Huawei or other Chinese suppliers from participating in European 5G networks. However, national governments are ambivalent.

- Severe restrictions on Chinese equipment would damage EU-China cooperation on BRI.
- Divergence over 5G risks the cohesion of the 'Five Eyes' alliance.
