Germany reportedly won't exclude Huawei 5G technology — if the company follows the rules

  Germany has no plans to stop Chinese telecommunications giant Huawei from participating in build up of ultra-high speed internet, known as 5G, in the country if it complies with all the security requirements, the Financial Times reported on Sunday.

  The president of the Bundesnetzagentur, the country's telecommunications regulator, told the FT that no equipment suppliers, including Huawei, "should, or may, be specifically excluded."

  He added that if Huawei meets the security requirements imposed by the regulator, it can take part in the 5G network roll-out.

  The United States banned Huawei from selling 5G networking equipment to U.S. firms.

  Huawei claims the security concerns are unfounded.
