China’s Huawei has signed a deal with Russian telecoms firm MTS to develop 5G technology in Russia.
The companies will develop next-generation 5G networks in Russia over the next year, reports said.
The deal was agreed as China’s President Xi Jinping began a three-day visit to Russia.
It comes as some Western countries, led by the US, have blocked the Chinese firm on concerns it poses a national security risk.
The deal will see “the development of 5G technologies and the pilot launch of fifth generation networks in 2019 and 2020,” MTS said in a statement, according to AFP.
The deal is likely to provide some relief to Huawei which has been under intense international scrutiny in recent months.
