WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States is disappointed by the United Kingdom’s decision to grant Chinese telecommunications firm Huawei a limited role in its 5G mobile network, a senior Trump administration official said on Tuesday.

“There is no safe option for untrusted vendors to control any part of a 5G network. We look forward to working with the UK on a way forward that results in the exclusion of untrusted vendor components from 5G networks,” the official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said.
