Trump, May discuss bilateral trade deal, ChinaTEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - British officials are considering whether to let Chinese telecoms firm Huawei work on parts of the country's new 5G wireless communications network.

The United States has been lobbying allies to exclude Huawei from all 5G networks over fears it could let the Chinese government gain access to data or conduct espionage.

U.K. Security Minister Ben Wallace says the government hasn't made a final decision, but that Huawei should be given a chance because the British "believe in fair play."

But former Foreign Secretary William Hague wrote in the Daily Telegraph that Washington wants the U.K. to join the United States in adopting a more comprehensive ban.
