Could Britain’s Open Door To Huawei Endanger Its Relationship With The U.S.?

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s January announcement that the United Kingdom would not ban the use of equipment produced by Chinese telecom giant Huawei in the development of the country’s 5G network came in direct defiance of President Donald Trump’s efforts to convince U.S. allies to ban the Chinese company.

The fact that Trump has put a priority on stopping China’s lead in the race to 5G, Britain is looking for new trade partners after its split from the European Union and Huawei’s involvement in Britain’s network infrastructure could pose a threat to U.S. national security could endanger the “special relationship” between the U.S. and Britain.
