MUMBAI/ISLAMABAD -- Huawei is urging cash-strapped South Asian nations to adopt its low-cost 5G technology as the tech group moves to fend off U.S. claims that it serves as a proxy for Chinese spying.

Already well positioned in Pakistan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, Huawei Technologies is intensifying efforts to allay India's concerns over the company's perceived ties to the Chinese army before trials of fifth-generation wireless technology start there later this year.
