BERLIN (Reuters) - Excluding China's Huawei from participating in the construction of Germany's 5G next-generation mobile network could hurt Europe's largest economy, Interior Minister Horst Seehofer said on Wednesday.

Seehofer, a Bavarian conservative, urged dialogue with China and a technical solution to concerns about security.

He warned against excluding Huawei, adding that in such a scenario: "Then I fear that would leave a mark on economic development."
