 Billions in losses: Qualcomm wants to trade with Huawei again © t3n Huawei Kirin 990 5G. According to Qualcomm, the US company is losing an $ 8 billion market at Huawei to Samsung and Mediatek. That doesn't serve American interests. Qualcomm is campaigning for the Trump administration to lift restrictions on the sale of high-end chipsets to the Chinese company Huawei Technologies. This is reported by the Wall Street Journal , citing a presentation by the US company that went to policy makers.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says the United States views the threat posed by China as "The challenge of resisting the CCP threat is in some ways much more difficult. Pompeo also called on other countries to work together to counter the threat of a "new tyranny" from the Communist country .

Pompeo addresses order to close China 's Houston consulate. While acknowledging differences between China and the Soviet Union , Pompeo said China is repeating some of the same mistakes that the Soviet Union made, such as alienating allies and rejecting property rights and rule of law.

Speaking on a visit to Prague, the Czech Republic on Wednesday the US Secretary of State said: "What's happening now isn't Cold War 2.0. The challenge of resisting the CCP [Chinese Communist Party] threat is in some ways worse.

"The CCP is already enmeshed in our economies, in our politics, in our societies in ways the Soviet Union never was."

Pompeo's suggestion that Beijing poses a greater threat today than the Soviet Union did in second half of the 20th century was striking given that the Czech Republic was controlled by oppressive Soviet forces for over four decades.

In comments reported by Politico, Pompeo said that while the Kremlin continued to "undermine" Prague through disinformation and cyber warfare, Beijing's "campaigns of coercion of control" represented a larger threat to the West.

ROVANIEMI, Finland — Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Monday sharply warned China and Russia against “aggressive” actions in the Arctic, while resisting a diplomatic push by other countries in the region to avert the worst effects of climate change. “This is America’s moment to stand up as an

"In your country alone, we see influence campaigns against your politicians and security forces, the theft of industrial data, and the use of economic leverage to stifle freedom itself," he said.

Speaking alongside Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babiš, Pompeo urged the Czech government to reject Chinese telecoms firm Huawei and said the US was keen to help Prague develop 5G and with its plans to build three nuclear power plants, saying it would be a "great opportunity to increase energy security for the Czech Republic and the entire region."

He claimed that China's suppression of Hong Kong and crimes against the Uighers were "sustained by companies like Huawei, using technology that the secret police could have only dreamed of."

Pompeo said: "Your nation, and others that suffered behind the Iron Curtain, know best of all how deeply communists plunge societies into ruin and repression... When the Iron Curtain finally fell, Americans rejoiced in your freedom."

U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson faces a diplomatic minefield after banning China’s Huawei from the U.K.’s next-generation wireless networks, as Beijing accused him of breaking promises and Donald Trump claimed credit for the prime minister’s decision.

“ China is already developing shipping lanes in the Arctic Ocean. Although China holds observer status on the Arctic Council, the country is 900 miles from the Arctic Ocean. Aside from its plans to hook up trade routes with China , Pompeo also warned Russia against militarizing the Arctic region.

Former Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt told BBC Radio 4's Today programme he "wondered whether it was wise" for the UK to become "technologically "I would say if the decision goes the other way this week, as some of the signs seem to indicate it might, I hope there will also be some reflection in the

However, Prime Minister Babiš did not commit to rejecting deals with Chinese companies, telling the press conference in Prague: "With all due respect to our American investors, I want more investments from China."

Pompeo will also visit Slovenia, Austria, and Poland in the coming days as part of his tour of eastern Europe.

The Trump administration hopes to persuade more of its European allies to shut out Huawei. Its tough sanctions against the telecoms firm recently prompted Boris Johnson's UK government to scrap an agreement to let it develop Britain's 5g.

Pompeo is also set to discuss the US plan to redeploy thousands of troops based in Germany across eastern Europe.

The move put fresh strain on Trump's difficult relationship with Berlin, with allies of German Chancellor Angela Merkel attacking the decision and saying it would weaken the west's resistance to Russia.

However, US Defense Secretary Mark Esper last week insisted that the move supported US strategic goals and would "strengthen NATO and improve operational efficiency."
