Türk Telekom and the Chinese company Huawei signed a memorandum of understanding for cooperation in the development of 5G technology in Turkey.
The Deputy Minister of Transport and Infrastructure Ömer Fatih Sayan attended the signing ceremony during the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
Türk Telekom CEO said 5G solutions were needed, especially in the areas of transport, health, education, agriculture, entertainment and urbanization.
It is recalled that similar cooperation with China has been developed by the UAE which pushed the USA to stop negotiations with the Emirates on the purchase of F-35.
The country’s cooperation with China on 5G had caused the US to be deeply concerned about the safety of F-35 technology. The result is that the US has exerted great pressure on the UAE and set stricter conditions for the purchase of the fighter jets, leading to the suspension of talks from the UAE side.
