Washington Post: Huawei Helped North Korea Build Wireless Network

On July 22, the Wash­ing­ton Post report­ed that inter­nal doc­u­ments it obtained showed that Chi­nese telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions com­pa­ny Huawei played a role in build­ing North Korea’s wire­less net­work.  The doc­u­ments point to a part­ner­ship between Huawei and a state-owned enter­prise called Pan­da Inter­na­tion­al Infor­ma­tion Tech­nol­o­gy Co. Ltd.  As not­ed in the arti­cle, the rev­e­la­tion rais­es ques­tions about Huawei hav­ing poten­tial­ly breached U.S. export con­trols in place on the re-export of U.S. equip­ment and tech­nol­o­gy to North Korea.  Huawei spokesper­son, Joe Kel­ly, denied the report.
