Earlier, the newspaper reported that British Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced plans to reduce participation of the Chinese company Huawei in the infrastructure of the British 5G network to zero by 2023.

According to the publication, Johnson will be presented with a report saying that the new US sanctions against Huawei will force the company to "use untrustworthy technologies", and therefore it may become impossible to control the risk of their use.

The newspaper also adds that the officials are preparing proposals to terminate installation of Huawei equipment for 5G networks in six months.

At the end of January, the UK authorities granted Huawei with access to development of the 5G network in the country in a limited mode. The Chinese company's technologies would not be allowed to the "sensitive" parts of the network related to national security. In particular, devices of the Chinese company would not be used at nuclear facilities and military bases in the UK.

The United States accuses Huawei of collaborating with the military and intelligence of the PRC and possible surveillance of customers, and convinces a number of countries not to use the infrastructure and equipment of Huawei when switching to the 5G cellular standard. The Chinese company claims that the allegations are unfounded, politically motivated and violate the principles of market competition.
