Britain's sovereignty will be in jeopardy if it allows Chinese tech giant Huawei to build its 5G network, Donald Trump's Secretary of State has warned. reports citing In an escalation of pressure on Boris Johnson, Mike Pompeo said the UK had a "momentous" decision to make this week over whether to allow Huawei to form part of the UK's 5G infrastructure.

The prime minister is on a collision course with Mr Trump's administration over the Chinese telecoms giant - which the US has banned from its 5G networks over potential security risks and urged allies to do the same.

Ministers are expected to make a decision on Huawei at a crunch meeting of the National Security Council on Tuesday, with reports emerging that Mr Johnson is poised to allow Huawei restricted access to the UK's network.

The tensions come just days before post-Brexit trade talks were due to begin, prompting fears over the impact of a row with Mr Trump on a crucial trade deal with the US.

Mr Tugendhat said: "Sovereignty means control of data as much as land.

"We need to decide what we're willing to invest in and who were willing to share our tech with.

"The real costs will come later if we get this wrong and allow Huawei to run 5G."
