The UK's National Cybersecurity Agency is expected to conclude that USA sanctions against Huawei will make it impossible to use the Chinese company's technology as planned for implementation of 5G throughout the country.
The Chinese government has faced a backlash over the global pandemic, which began in China, and has denied USA allegations that it has not been transparent about the virus' initial outbreak.
Announced on Sunday, this emergency review is created to pave the way for the country's government to push for the total elimination of Huawei equipment in British phone networks by 2023, while also having the political effect in dispersing a Conservative backbench revolt. He said that based on advice from the NCSC, the nation's four largest telecommunications carriers could use equipment from Huawei for up to 35% of non-sensitive parts of their 5G and gigabit-capable networks, for at least the next three years.
Members of Johnson's government also criticised the Huawei decision.

In Brazil, LATAM for weeks has been negotiating a bailout of up to 2 billion reais ($367.45 million) that has yet to materialize. LATAM has between $10 billion and $50 billion in assets and liabilities, according to its bankruptcy petition.
The US sanctions, due to be introduced in September, would prevent Huawei from using US semiconductors and software to build 5G equipment and force it to source alternatives, most likelyfrom China.
Senior ministers also want to reduce the UK's economic dependence on China for essential goods. The plan reportedly has the backing of UK's intelligence officials as well, who argue that "any risks that HUAWEI equipment could be exploited for mass surveillance could be contained".
"Our priority remains to continue the rollout of a reliable and secure 5G networks across Britain", says Victor Zhang, a Huawei vice president.
Britain's initial decision on Huawei sparked diplomatic tensions with Australia in February, with the ABC revealing the UK's High Commissioner wrote to two federal parliamentary committees to formally protest against the leaking of sensitive conversations about the move.
Earlier this month, lawyers representing two Uyghur activists said they will send a letter warning the British government of court action if it presses on with the plan to grant the Chinese telecoms giant a role in national 5G networks - claiming it breaks United Kingdom human rights and European Union procurement laws. Conservative MP Bob Seely recently said "to all intents and purposes [Huawei] is part of the Chinese state" and involving the company would be "to allow China and its agencies access to our network".
