BERLIN (Reuters) - Interior Minister Horst Seehofer wants to change Germany's telecommunications law so that stricter conditions apply to all foreign vendors, the RND group of newspapers reported on Tuesday.

Citing participants in a meeting of conservatives and Social Democrats, who rule together in a grand coalition, RND said Seehofer's aim was to better control China's Huawei Technologies rather than exclude it from the German market.

It said all firms affected be subject to a security certification process and need to sign a no-spy agreement.
