PARIS, July 21 (Reuters) - French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire told France Info radio on Tuesday that France would not ban China's Huawei from investing in the country, in contrast to Britain which has decided to purge the firm's equipment from its 5G network by 2027.

Le Maire nevertheless condemned China's alleged abuses against the country's minority Muslim population.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo took fresh aim at China last week, saying the United States would impose visa restrictions on Chinese firms such as Huawei that he accused of facilitating human-rights violations.
