Pompeo says the United States warns partners about the risks of 'unreliable 5G networks'

LISBON (Reuters) - The United States has spent the past two years working to make sure its allies around the world know the risks of working with companies like Huawei, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told reporters in Lisbon on Thursday. The mission of the United States has been to share what we know, what we understand and then how the United States thinks about the decision we will have to take in the light of where the information from the United States is traveling, Pompeo said when asked about participation of the Chinese electronics giant in Portugal. . He did not quote the company by name, but referred to unreliable networks, but added that the United States respected each country's right to make its own decisions. Chinese companies have significant investments in key sectors in Portugal and telecommunications operators are working with Huawei to deploy 5G networks in the country. Pompeo's comments were made during a joint press conference with the Portuguese Foreign Minister Augusto Santos Silva.
