BERLIN: Germany opposes excluding any manufacturers and technologies from the planned construction of 5G mobile networks, a spokesman for the interior ministry said, in an important vote of support for Chinese suppliers led by Huawei Technologies.

The comments come after U.S. allies like Australia, New Zealand and Japan restricted Huawei's access to their markets and the company's chief financial officer was arrested in Canada facing possible extradition to the United States.
