U.S. Senator Ben Sasse, a member of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, released the following statement after Sweden banned Huawei and ZTE from gaining access to their 5G network.

"Make no mistake: Huawei is simply the CCP’s surveillance puppet disguised as a ‘private’ company. There is nothing ‘private’ about Huawei. They lie, steal information, and report only to Chairman Xi. Sweden made the right call today and our relationship will be made stronger for it."
