BEIJING – The British government on Tuesday said it would allow Chinese telecom giant Huawei to play a limited role in the launch of the 5G mobile network.

The decision is influenced by the British National Security Council and will allow Huawei to work on various parts of the UK phone system and will also cover 35% of UK retailer 5G.

But the Chinese telecom technology giant is banned from operating in areas such as nuclear complexes and military installations, according to a UPI report. Edit: Pang Kong
