"Huawei is one of the largest providers of telecommunications equipment in the EU countries, and by this time no country has even interrupted (co-operation) nor considered this possibility," Ljajić pointed out for the RSE.
In 2017, the Chinese company signed several agreements with Serbian ministries on the basis of the Agreement on Economic and Technical Cooperation in the field of infrastructure, signed by the governments of Serbia and China earlier.
One of the biggest partners of Huawei in Serbia is the state telecommunication company Telekom Srbija, Ljajić reminded.
