Turkcell CEO Kaan Terzioglu stated that Huawei is a reliable business partner and the partnership is set to continue.
The statement assumes significance because Huawei is facing troubles in several European and Asian telecom markets.
“Processing personal data without consent, digital imperialism shuts in individuals on every ground by and manipulates decisions at scale. The problem is not just about personal data privacy, it’s about a couple of global companies’ desire to stay in power,” Kaan Terzioglu said.
Turkcell CEO said that security vulnerability claims against Huawei cannot be evaluated in isolation from the current developments in the market.
“It wouldn’t be right to evaluate Huawei’s current situation by ignoring the competition in the smart phone market and the conflict of which company will lead 5G. No one should expect us to act on uncorroborated claims. Turkcell will continue to work with its long-time business partner Huawei,” Kaan Terzioglu said.
Kaan Terzioglu said Turkcell has the necessary means to secure networks and customer’s data. “We are very well prepared in regardless of where we buy the technology whether it is from a Chinese, European or an American company.”
