PARIS (Reuters) – French President Emmanuel Macron, asked about possible security risks posed by China’s Huawei, said on Thursday that he would never look to stigmatise any particular telecoms operator or any particular country.

Macron made the comments at a joint news briefing with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg.

French junior economy minister Agnes Pannier-Runacher had said this week that France would not follow the United States and exclude Huawei from its next-generation 5G network, even though France would have the power to vet all equipment makers for any potential security threat.
