Italy has denied a report it will ban China's Huawei Technologies and ZTE Corp from playing a role in building its fifth-generation mobile phone network. Enhancing our software engineering capabilities is like replacing components on a high-speed train in motion, ' Huawei's carrier business group president, Ryan Ding, said in the letter.

Poland will also nearly certainly exclude Huawei from its efforts to build 5G infrastructure, according to new reports.

The United States froze Huawei out of its network infrastructure a year ago, claiming that the company was adding backdoor access on behalf of the Chinese government.

President Donald Trump is expected to sign an executive order next week that would ban Chinese telecommunication equipment from US wireless networks, Politico reported late Thursday, citing three sources.

"It is a complicated and involved process, and will take at least three to five years to see tangible results".

"The governments in some countries have labelled Huawei as a security threat, but they have never substantiated these allegations with solid evidence".

A British government oversight panel that monitors Huawei's activities in the United Kingdom warned past year that it can provide only "limited assurance" that its telecoms equipment poses no threat to national security.

'For us, it is a matter of security or nothing; there is no third option.

The letter was a response to concerns raised by the Huawei Cyber Security Evaluation Centre, a body including Huawei, UK operators and Government officials. Japan, Italy, Germany, Australia, New Zealand, those are just some of the countries that are considering the ban on Huawei.

With these 5G build outs looming, senior officials want "to move the needle" with their security messaging, said the source close to the administration.

Huawei is additionally offering to construct a cybersecurity hub in Poland "if authorities accept this as a trusted solution", Reuters reported Huawei Poland head Tonny Bao as saying.

Its chief financial officer Meng Wanzhou was arrested in Canada in December at Washington's request.

It's believed Huawei and ZTE aren't specifically named in the executive order, but the companies would obviously fall under the category of Chinese telecom equipment providers.

The company's CFO is in Canada, in custody, awaiting extradition to the U.S. on charges of fraud.
