Nokia Takes Legal Challenge to 5G Exclusion in Romania

The Finnish network equipment manufacturer Nokia said on Thursday that it had launched a lawsuit against a decision by the Romanian government to exclude it from selling 5G technology in the country.

Last year, Romania’s central government approved a US-backed bill that effectively prevented China’s Huawei from participating in its 5G network development.

“We can confirm that in February we were informed that we had been denied permission to provide 5G infrastructure equipment in Romania by the Romanian Government,” Nokia said in a statement.

“We are seeking an urgent clarification of the reasons for this decision and have initiated legal proceedings.”

Nokia did not provide further details.
