Subsequently, he announced related plans on the US government website. ‘Clean Network’ named 7 Chinese technology companies to be banned for launching applications and Internet services from China. The plan includes five areas – operators, application stores, applications, cloud services, and cables. This will allow the US to fully crack down on Chinese companies, as follows.

Five Measures of Clean Network

Operators: Urge the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to revoke and terminate the authorization of China Telecom, China Unicom, Pacific Networks Corp and its subsidiary ComNet (USA) to provide communications services in the United States.

App Store: Pompeo also emphasized on the same day that the United States will take action soon and have good reasons to delete Chinese-funded applications. ‘With parent companies based in China, apps like TikTok and WeChat and others, are significant threats to personal data of American citizens, not to mention tools for Chinese Communist Party content censorship.’

Apps: Requests to remove apps from American companies from the app stores of untrusted smartphone manufacturers (referring to Huawei).

Cables: Work hard to ensure that the information transmitted by submarine cables connected to the global Internet will not be destroyed or leaked. Pompeo declared that Huawei Marine bid for submarine cables connecting Asia, the Pacific, Africa and Europe. ‘The United States will not allow this to continue.’

Cloud services: Prevent the storage and processing of the most sensitive personal information of US citizens and our company’s most valuable intellectual property (including COVID-19 vaccine research) on cloud-based systems from being obtained by foreign opponents through companies such as Alibaba and Tencent.

The U.S. State Department launched the 5G Clean Path program on April 29. All network information exchanges related to U.S. diplomatic agencies must go through trusted 5G telecommunications equipment. The untrusted suppliers are named Huawei and ZTE.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin also stated at a regular press conference on August 4. He said that the United States used ‘unnecessary’ charges to impose restrictions and suppress, which is completely political manipulation. The United States must not open Pandora’s box, otherwise will not lead to anything better.

    USA is going mad. They are continuously taking steps to escalate confrontation. It is going to destroy international hegemony. I cannot see any better future out of USA’s stupid actions.

    Though Trump and his associates have historically made blunders, they finally seems to be doing the right things (albeit election tactics for winning another term) for securing the environment against Chinese spying. All these steps should have been carried out decades before.

    The issue is they are doing it hastily without ensuring the supply-chain is setup at home instead.
