China’s ambassador to the UK Liu Xiaoming has said trust between the two nations has been “seriously damaged” by the ban on Huawei in Britain’s 5G network.
Speaking on Wednesday, Mr Liu said: “I think it firstly undermines the trust between the two countries.
“It’s not only disappointing, it’s disheartening.”
He praised the “good company” for having invested £2 billion in the UK, creating 28,000 jobs and having contributed “greatly” to the telecoms industry.
But he said the UK had acted to “simply dump” Huawei.
“It’s very disheartening.
"FxiaoThe way you treat Huawei will be followed very closely by other Chinese businesses,” he said.
“I think the trust is seriously damaged between the government-level and among the businesses.”
