TOKYO -- Chile will not exclude Chinese telecoms gear maker Huawei from its choice of service providers when it introduces its 5G technology network, the Latin American nation's vice-minister for trade told the Nikkei Asian Review.

"We are receptive of concerns that some trading partners have on [using Huawei equipment]," Rodrigo Yanez Benitez said in an interview, referring to the U.S. exclusion of the Chinese tech company. "We have listened carefully to all of them."
