Huawei Technologies Co. executives have asked for a meeting with the U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson and come up with a deal to delay its potential removal from fifth generation mobile networks until after elections in 2025, the Sunday Times reported.

Huawei would in return pledge to maintain its equipment in the U.K., which is also used in 2G, 3G and 4G mobile networks, the Times said.
