China’s ambassador to Canada warned that excluding Huawei Technologies Co. from its next-generation wireless network will have repercussions.

Speaking to reporters in Ottawa, Ambassador Lu Shaye said there is no evidence that Huawei represents a national security risk and he hopes the Canadian government will make a “wise decision” in allowing the company’s equipment to be used in so-called 5G networks.
