Relations between Washington and London have warmed following the falling-out over the UK government’s decision to use China’s Huawei as a supplier for its 5G network, reports the Financial Times. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo insisted that China was the ‘central threat of our times’, but accepted that it was a ‘sovereign’ UK decision and would not harm relations between the two countries, including intelligence-sharing. The US had wanted the UK to ditch Huawei for 5G but, in a meeting with the UK Foreign Secretary, Dominic Raab, it emerged that the two countries would now collaborate on efforts to develop a western rival to Huawei’s 5G equipment. The Wall Street journal reports that Huawei is pressing Australia to follow the UK and reverse its decision to ban the company’s equipment.
