LONDON (Reuters) – Britain will make a decision soon on whether to allow Huawei hardware will be used in 5G networks, but China needs to play by the rules, and if he could get access to Western markets, the Minister of Defense of Ben Wallace, ” he said.

Asked when a decision would be made by the United Kingdom, to Ascend, Wallace said on Wednesday: “The government will have to come to a position quickly. We’ll make a decision pretty soon.

He added: “We will not allow anything to compromise our sensitive networks in the uk, but our technical advice was that there are places where we can go to the reduction of the risk of the security.

“This is about more than just engineering – it is also about behavior,” he told reporters. “It wasn’t that long ago that the United Kingdom, and other countries have called for China to be in the front of some of the company’s business. And if we’re going to allow countries access to our markets, and I think we’re all going to be expected of a code of good conduct, fair play.”
