The US government recommended this week that China Mobile be prevented to enter into the US telecommunications market, saying that the company may pose a national security risk.

David Redl, assistant secretary for communications and information at the U.S. Department of Commerce, said that they were unable to resolve concerns on risk to US law enforcement and national security interests even after a significant amount of engagement with the company.

China Mobile, currently the world’s largest telecom carrier with 899 million subscribers, is largely owned by China Mobile Communications Corporation, a Chinese government-controlled firm.
