STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - Sweden on Tuesday banned on security grounds the use of telecom equipment from China's Huawei and ZTE (000063.SZ) in its 5G network ahead of a spectrum auction scheduled for next month, joining other European nations that have restricted the role of Chinese suppliers.


Telecoms regulator PTS said here the decision followed advice from the country's armed forces and security service, which described China as "one of the biggest threats against Sweden".


European governments have been tightening controls on Chinese companies building 5G networks, following diplomatic pressure from Washington, which alleges Huawei equipment could be used by Beijing for spying. Huawei has repeatedly denied being a national security risk.

Why should Sweden have a neutral position vs a country that behaves like a bull in a glass shop.
The Chinese ambassador to Sweden has been out of line for quite some time and it is a surprise that he has not been asked to leave.
I worked personally at companies that discovered Chinese employees stealing secrets.
China has sent people to Sweden that try to create scandals with Chinese journalists conveniently being close by to take photos.
China is kidnapping Swedish citizens living in other countries and convict them on made up charges.
You do not need CIA to badmouth China, since they do a very good job themselves.

Imagine what China can do now that Sweden is actively hostile.
