UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson is expected to allow Chinese tech giant Huawei build out its fifth-generation mobile networks in Britain, the Financial Times reported, citing people close to the discussions.

A final decision on Huawei’s future role in the UK will be taken at the National Security Council on Tuesday. Johnson is looking at imposing a cap on Huawei’s market share, FT said.
