London: British Prime Minister Theresa May has reportedly approved a limited role for China's Huawei to help build a 5G network in the UK, shrugging off security warnings from senior ministers and Washington surrounding the telecoms giant, media said on Wednesday.

The National Security Council, chaired by May, agreed on Tuesday to allow the Chinese tech giant limited access to build "non-core" infrastructure such as antennas, The Daily Telegraph newspaper wrote.

 

The Times was more cautious, stating that May was "considering giving limited approval".

Her reported moves come despite concerns raised by Home Secretary Sajid Javid, Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt, Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson, Internation-al Trade Secretary Liam Fox and International Development Secretary Penny Mordaunt.
