FCC asks Justice Department to weigh in on China Unicom U.S. operations

WASHINGTON, Oct 16 (Reuters) - The Federal Communications Commision (FCC) asked the Justice Department and other U.S. agencies to detail if China Unicom’s continued U.S operations pose national security risks, according to a letter released Friday.

In April, the FCC issued show-cause orders warning it might shut down the U.S. operations of three state-controlled Chinese telecommunications companies: China Telecom, China Unicom and Pacific Networks Corp and its subsidiary ComNet (USA). China Unicom has a nearly two-decade old authorization to provide international telecommunications services to and from the United States. (Reporting by David Shepardson Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
