US, Poland Agree to Enforce Tighter 5G Regulations

Jeff Brody

The U.S. and Poland have agreed to impose stricter regulations on 5G network infrastructure projects amid the Trump administration’s concerns over the use of Huawei products, the Wall Street Journal reported Monday

Polish President Andrzej Duda and U.S. Vice President Mike Pence signed the joint agreement during the latter’s visit to Poland for a ceremony marking the end of World War II. The agreement, which didn't mention the Chinese telecommunications firm, would mandate stringent reviews of any company seeking to build 5G infrastructure.

Interested parties would undergo assessments to ensure that they are not subject to the control of a foreign government.

Pence noted in a press conference that the agreement would “ensure the security of our digital infrastructure.” He also announced that locations for joint military bases in Poland have been finalized and that the country is “nearing eligibility” for a program that provides visa-free benefits for visitors to the U.S.
