  • Pushing back against pressure from the United States, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Tuesday that those opposing products from Huawei must come up with an “alternative solution” to the Chinese company’s telecommunications technology.
  • The visit is seen as the latest effort by US President Donald Trump’s administration to lobby the British government ahead of a decision expected this month on whether to limit the use of Huawei’s technology in the 5G network.
  • Washington’s pressure on London over Huawei comes as a long-awaited phase-one part of a trade deal between China and the US has been reached.
