The government said on Friday it would hold talks with telecoms sector players including service providers within a week to help address security threats in networks.

Earlier this year, India had barred Indian mobile phone operators from placing orders with China's Huawei Technologies and ZTE Corp because of security concerns, telecom industry officials have said.

India worries that Chinese equipment may have spying technology embedded to intercept sensitive conversations and government documents that can endanger national security, highlighting government concerns over security.

A government statement telecoms service providers should be responsible for the security of their networks, and New Delhi would be issuing instructions to help the carriers address security threats in their networks.
