Chile: Huawei pushes to expand its influence

Huawei continues to push to build a submarine cable connecting Chile to Asia. 

This project will be connected to the new data center, the Huawei Cloud that has opened yesterday and is the company's first public cloud in Latin America. 

Chilean executives have ignored U.S. warnings and inaugurated in May a 1,864-mile fiber optic cable built in part by the controversial Chinese company. 

Australia, the United Kingdom, and the United States, among others, have prohibited the participation of Huawei in its communications infrastructure due to the company's link with the totalitarian regime of The Chinese Communist Party (or the CCP). 

Experts in the United States have warned that Huawei is the technological arm of the Chinese army, which seeks to expand its control.

United States, El Salvador sign immigration pact

The United States and El Salvador have agreed on a co-operation agreement on immigration. 

U.S. Interim Secretary of Homeland Security Kevin McAleenan and Salvadoran President Nayib Bukele met on Wednesday. 

The top U.S. official notes that in recent months there have been far fewer Salvadorans departing for the U.S.

McAleenan also points out that fewer immigrants cross the Central American country. So he rules out the option of a 'safe third country' for the time being. 

Thus, the agreement focuses on increasing border security, the exchange of information, and the implementation of measures to boost El Salvador's economic development.
