The agency warns technology from the companies could be used as surveillance tools for the Chinese government. The U.S. and Japan banned their government agencies from purchasing tech from the companies, while Australia and New Zealand prohibited Huawei and ZTE from powering their 5G networks. "China's laws, among other things, require private companies residing in China to cooperate with intelligence services, therefore introducing them into the key state systems might present a threat," NCISA Director Dušan Navrátil said.
