For this, the Italian government is ready to use a mechanism that allows terminating signed contracts without paying a fine, the source said.

According to sources, “heavy pressure” was exerted on Italy by the United States.

The United States called on EU countries not to buy Chinese Huawei equipment to create a fifth-generation mobile network infrastructure.

US officials plan to hold talks with France, Germany and other European countries and inform them that "the world's largest manufacturer of telecommunications equipment poses a security threat," Reuters reported this week with reference to the State Department spokesman.

Washington fears that the technology giant is too closely tied to the Chinese government. Although Huawei has repeatedly denied such allegations, concerns about the safety of its technology also arose in Canada, Germany, the UK, Australia and New Zealand.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said this week that Germany needs assurances that Huawei Technologies will not transmit data to the Chinese authorities before the company can participate in the creation of the 5G network.

Analysts and security experts say that Canada may prohibit Huawei Technologies from participating in its 5G network, the South China Morning Post reported. However, according to them, the Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau can postpone the decision as long as possible in order not to endanger the Canadians detained in China.
