Pompeo in London after unexpected visit to Iraq

Pompeo in London after unexpected visit to Iraq

Trump's trip will likely generate political controversy and large street protests and aerial displays.

He met with British Prime Minister Theresa May and Hunt during his one-day visit "to discuss shared global priorities". However, his warm words did not mask disagreements between the two allies over Iran and particularly Huawei.

Mr. Secretary said "The regime in Tehran should understand that any attacks by them or their proxies of any identity against United States interests or citizens will be answered with a swift and decisive USA response", the report further said.

Mr Hunt said: "With respect to Huawei and 5G, we have not made our final decision as a government".

While "each country has a sovereign right to make its own decision about how to deal with the challenge", of whether to invite Chinese firms like Huawei and ZTE to bid on infrastructure contracts, the United Kingdom certainly wouldn't want to make the wrong decision, Pompeo hinted, adding, "I have great confidence that the United Kingdom will never take an action that will break this special relationship".

Pompeo is set to meet with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in Sochi on May 14.

Separately, Minister of Fun* Jeremy Wright told Parliament there is "certainly the possibility of a delay in the process of the rollout of 5G", asserting that rushing into a live commercial deployment would end up being done "without any consideration for security". "If you want to do 5G fastest then you do that without any consideration for security".

Companies from signatory nations have been wary of investing in Iran for fear of triggering United States retaliation, leaving Tehran feeling that it has not reaped expected benefits from the deal in terms of access to finance and markets for its oil. He previously canceled a scheduled trip to Germany.

DeSantis signs bill allowing more armed teachers

The US military said Tuesday that additional forces being sent to the Middle East will also include B-52 bombers.

Trump withdrew from the Obama administration's landmark nuclear deal with Iran in May 2018 and, in the months that followed, re-imposed punishing sanctions, including those targeting Iran's oil, shipping and banking sectors.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo departing Rovaniemi, Finland, following the 11th Ministerial Meeting of the Arctic Council.

Pompeo first changed his plans to have meetings on Iran after U.S. President Donald Trump on Wednesday imposed fresh sanctions on Iran over its nuclear program.

American allies are pushing back and asking Washington how it intends to handle the fact that some of the smaller USA telecom companies also use Huawei equipment in their current generation networks, Warner said.

Mr Pompeo warned earlier this year that the USA will not "partner" with countries that adopt Huawei systems.

"The United States, for its part, will only participate in trusted networks", Pompeo said.
