Staff Writer |
The Maltese government has said that it will not be reviewing agreements with Huawei, the Chinese telecommunications leader recently targeted by U.S. prosecutors, local media reported.

"... no change in the current relationship is being envisaged at this time," the Times of Malta quoted a spokesperson for the government as saying.

Malta signed a memorandum of understanding with Huawei over the introduction of 5G technology for Maltese businesses and citizens in July. Similar strategic agreements had been signed between the two sides.

"Malta will not interfere in the trade dispute between two countries with which it has excellent relations," said the Maltese government spokesperson, referring to the United States and China.
