The United States has made progress in convincing the European Union of the risks involved in using technology from Huawei Technologies Co Ltd and will continue to push them on the issue, said US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, reported Reuters.
In congressional testimony, Pompeo said he was “hopeful” that the Europeans would take the US stance on using Huawei equipment.
“I think we’ve made progress and I know that we are going to continue to push,” he said. “When you have telecommunications that are deeply connected to state-owned enterprises connected to China, we don’t see there is a technical mitigation risk that is possible.”
Pompeo has warned that the US will not partner with or share information with countries that adopt Huawei technology.
