Huawei will reportedly be likely waiting until after the Canadian election in October to find out whether it will be banned on providing 5G tech there, too.

Citing three sources, Reuters reported Monday the decision is tied to the Canadians who remain detained in China.

Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou was arrested in Canada at the request of the US over alleged Iran sanctions violations in early Dec. 2018.

Beijing followed this by detaining two Canadian citizens in China a week later.

Reuters says experts in Ottawa are currently investigating whether national security will be impacted by 5G networks, including Huawei's involvement in them.

Back in January, China had reportedly warned Canada that there would be repercussions if it was banned for 5G.
