Pompeo warns of "real risk" from Huawei

He's arrived in the UK for talks with Dominic Raab and the Prime Minister

The US warned that Huawei poses a "real risk" to security as Boris Johnson insisted allowing the Chinese firm to be involved in the UK's 5G network would not damage transatlantic security co-operation.

Secretary of state Mike Pompeo said the firm was "an extension of the Chinese Communist Party" and Washington would "evaluate" the UK's decision.

Mr Pompeo has arrived in the UK for talks with Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab and the Prime Minister with the shadow of the Huawei row hanging over them.

The Chinese tech giant has always rejected claims it represents a security risk.
