Mike Pompeo Visits Iraq Amid Tensions With Iran

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is seen during the Arctic Council Ministerial Meeting in Rovaniemi

Pompeo warned that Chinese law enables the government to obtain access to data on Huawei systems, and asked what the United Kingdom government could do "to make sure sensitive technologies don't become open doors for Beijing's spymasters?"

Mr Ellwood, who worked under Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson who was sacked for leaking details of plans on Huawei, told LBC Radio: 'I'm very concerned.

The US Secretary of State addressed Mrs May's reported decision to give Chinese company, Huawei, restricted access to the 5G network, according to the Daily Telegraph.

In its drive for global domination, the U.S. is breaking up the post-war order, with every country once deemed an ally now cast as a potential adversary.

She did not elaborate, but Pompeo earlier this week cancelled a visit to Germany on his four-nation tour of Europe to visit Baghdad amid worsening tensions with Iran.

The US military said on Tuesday that B-52 bombers would be among the additional forces being sent to the Middle East to counter what Trump's administration said were "clear indications" of threats from Iran to US forces there.

Such hypocrisy can not hide the fact that the U.S. is interfering in every country, including those that are historically its closest allies.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Wednesday warned the United Kingdom that as a result of China's economic and political activity and aims, the country now represents "a new kind of challenge, an authoritarian regime that's integrated economically into the West". But this had strict limits that the U.S. would enforce.

He said: "With respect to 5G, we continue to have technical discussions".

This designation covered the entire planet.

He insisted that no decision on Huawei had officially been taken by the Government and "we need to take into account the issues of an open trading system but we also have to ensure protection, particularly of our critical national infrastructure, and that we'll do". He hailed "the security relationship that we have with the United States", which has "underpinned the worldwide order since 1945", adding that "the preservation of that is our number one foreign policy priority".

The UK and USA have also disagreed on how to approach Iran.

Exactly one year after withdrawing from the JCPOA, the United States announced new sanctions against Iran.

John Bolton, the United States national security adviser, said only that the USA was acting "in response to a number of troubling and escalatory indications and warnings" on announcing the deployment of the USS Abraham Lincoln on Sunday.

Tehran did not immediately respond to the latest remarks by Pompeo and Trump.

He said Russia's Nord Stream 2 project, a project to build a gas pipeline from Russian Federation to Germany, should not be allowed to proceed. They warned Iran not to violate the JCPOA accord, at the same time promising some help. The historic agreement, signed in 2016, set targets for each country to reduce its carbon emissions, but President Trump has initiated USA withdrawal from the pact.

Why is there so much hostility between Iran and the US?
