He particularly mentioned the establishment of the NATO Cyber Operations Center (COO), which has considerably enhanced the quality of NATO cyber defence. When asked by press representatives about a potential risk due to Chinese Huawei’s involvement in the provision of the 5G infrastructure in the NATO member states, he replied that NATO was thoroughly analysing the implications this involvement might have for the security of the NATO Allies.
