Huawei enters 5G deal with Russian firm

MOSCOW, June 6, 2019

China's Huawei has signed a deal with Russia's MTS to develop 5G technology in Russia, reports said.
The companies will develop next-generation 5G networks in Russia over the next year, they said. The deal was agreed as China's President Xi Jinping began a three-day visit to Russia.
The deal comes as some Western countries, led by the US, have blocked the Chinese firm on concerns it poses a national security risk.
The deal will see "the development of 5G technologies and the pilot launch of fifth generation networks in 2019 and 2020," MTS said in a statement.
The deal is likely to provide some relief to Huawei which has been under intense international scrutiny in recent months.
