US officials have reportedly contacted the governments of friendly nations like Japan, Italy and Germany to warn them about the alleged risk of using Huawei devices. They are also thought to have contacted counterparts in Britain. The US is concerned over the use of equipment originating from China in countries where US military bases are established. To encourage the governments of several countries to completely abandon Huawei-branded telecom hardware, the US is willing to provide funds for the development of communications infrastructure.
