NEW DELHI -- The Indian government is looking for a way to restrict Huawei Technologies' involvement in the country's 5G infrastructure without appearing to single out the Chinese telecom equipment maker, according to government sources.

One option being considered, sources say, is a "middle approach" in which Huawei would only be kept out of vital 5G projects in border areas where India has territorial disputes with its neighbors.
