"It will send a very bad message not only to Huawei but also to Chinese companies," ambassador Liu Xiaoming told the BBC. He added that blocking Huawei would lead to "bad effects not only on trading but also on investment".
Britain's National Security Council, chaired by Prime Minister Theresa May, met to discuss Huawei in April and decided to block Huawei from all core parts of the 5G network, but to provide limited access to non-core parts.
A final decision by the British Ministers' Cabinet was due to have happened in recent weeks, but corn's commitment to go down as Prime Minister has stopped the process, sources said. She is expected to be gone by the end of July.
