India Sells Out and Buys Chinese Telecom Products

How disappointig to see India bow down to the Chinese telecoms. India has been one of the few countires to play hardball with the Chinese but they have now burst my bubble by caving in.
They will buy equipment from Huawei, who is not too far removed from the government here and the man who started it actually was a member of the red army, so we know with whom his loyalties lie.
The issue was that the Indians said that the Chinese had ways or trapdoors in their equipment that could potentially compromise Indian security.. Knowing China, it makes sense, they trust no one, and actually had a little war with India less than 50 years ago. Too bad that India has made this choice!

chinadaily excerpt:
NEW DELHI – India has allowed two telecom companies to buy equipment from China’s Huawei and ZTE after the Chinese companies agreed to New Delhi’s tighter rules to address security concerns, sources said on Friday.

This year, India barred some local mobile phone operators from placing orders with Huawei and ZTE on security concerns.

A source with direct knowledge said Tata Teleservices, which had applied for government approval to buy telecom gear from Huawei and ZTE, received the go-ahead after the Chinese company accepted all the conditions set by India.
