UK Ban on Huawei Would Damage China-UK Relations, Says Chinese Ambassador

China’s ambassador to UK, Liu Xiaoming says a potential ban on Huawei by the British government will damage trust between the two countries, and will show that UK is unable to develop a foreign policy independent of the US.

Liu also added that such a move would tarnish UK’s perception as a business-friendly government and Chinese companies would watch closely.
