US senators asked for Google's explanation of cooperation with Huawei
As a result of this explanation, US Senator Mark Warner asked for an explanation to the parent company of Google, Alphabet and Twitter about their data sharing agreement with Chinese vendors. Facebook and a number of Chinese vendors also have a similar partnership.
According to Warner, the Chinese Communist Party's cooperation and telecom equipment manufacturers such as Huawei and ZTE Corps have been a national security concern since 2012. ZTE is the second-largest telecom equipment manufacturer in China.
Based on national security considerations, Warner asked CEO Alphabet, Larry Page, whether the company has a third-party cooperation with Huawei, ZTE, Lenovo or TCL. In addition, Warner also questioned the seriousness of the Alphabet handling consumer data correctly.
He also asked the Twitter CEO, Jack Dorsey, about the microblogging site's relationship with Huawei. This Chinese company is the world's third largest smartphone manufacturer.
In response to this issue, Google explains in its e-mail, "We have agreements with many manufacturers in the world, including Huawei We do not grant them specific access to Google user data and our agreement covers security and privacy protection for user data."
Meanwhile, Twitter declined to comment.
