The US "may be forced to scale back certain operations in Europe and elsewhere if countries continue to do business with the China's Huawei".

USA officials are deeply troubled by Huawei's expansion in Europe, especially in North Atlantic Treaty Organisation member states where they believe it poses significant information security threats.

Slovakia's experience under Soviet domination gives it "a special appreciation for the aggressive role Russian Federation continues to play in the region", Pompeo later said at a news conference with Foreign Minister Miroslav Lajcak.

The top American diplomat's comments came as he continued his Central European charm offensive aimed at curbing the growing influence of both Russian Federation and China in the region. The Trump administration, which wants to boost its partnership with Hungary and other central European countries, is warning that nations using Huawei equipment in critical infrastructure could open themselves to security risks.

"Hungarians know all too well from their history that an authoritarian Russian Federation will never be a friend to the freedom and sovereignty of smaller nations". The warning was broad but pointedly delivered first in Hungary, a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation ally and European Union member, where Huawei is a major player.

THE US GOVERNMENT has sent a stark warning to its allies about their use of Huawei technology.

"We must not let Putin drive wedges between friends in North Atlantic Treaty Organisation", he said, adding that he had also warned of "the dangers of allowing China to gain a bridgehead in Hungary".

President Barack Obama's administration had largely steered clear of Orban, who won a third consecutive term previous year in a campaign based on anti-immigration policies and whose policies have been met with street protests and deepening concern within the EU.

The right-wing nationalist, who has repeatedly vowed to make Hungary a "Christian homeland, " has built high-tech border fences to curb migration and has said that Middle Eastern immigrants should be viewed "Muslim invaders" rather than "refugees", Politico reports. His fiery rhetoric against migrants and refusal to join a new European Union public prosecutor's office focusing on fraud and corruption have also raised concerns.
