Nick Read, chief executive of the British telecoms group, said yesterday that it had "paused" the deployment of Huawei equipment in its core networks in Europe, the part of the system that is deemed most sensitive.

The former Huawei staff member, who under Polish law can be identified only as Weijing W., said through his lawyer that he had lived in Poland for more than 12 years, and was hired at Huawei's Polish unit in 2011 as a public relations manager.

Its U.S. market evaporated after a congressional panel labeled Huawei and its smaller Chinese rival ZTE Corp. security risks in 2012 and told phone companies to avoid dealing with them.

Last year, Australia, Japan, New Zealand and the United States banned the Chinese telecommunications giant from participating in government contracts. U.S. President Donald Trump's administration has been pushing European allies to block Huawei from their telecom networks, citing fears that China could use its equipment for spying, something its executives have denied.

Completely banning Huawei's radio network would lead to a "a significant delay" in the launch of 5G networks in the UK".

A Huawei spokesperson said: "Vodafone and Huawei are long-term strategic partners that have worked together since 2007".

"I want to see when the opponent can catch up with Huawei's data..." Both companies manufacture in China and do business with carriers in the country.
