Secretary of State Michael Pompeo warned that the U.S. may not share some information with NATO allies if they incorporate Chinese technology in their networks, his most explicit warning to date of the danger the U.S. sees in doing business with Huawei Technology Co.

“We’ve made clear that if the risk exceeds the threshold for the United States, we simply won’t be able to share that information any longer,” Pompeo told reporters Thursday after meeting with counterparts from the North Atlantic Treaty Organization in Washington.
