After meeting Croatian Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that he is confident that European countries will take all the necessary steps to prevent their citizens’ private data by not allowing China 5G network.
Mike Pompeo said, “I am confident that many more European countries now, frankly because of just sharing information with them, they are going to make their own sovereign decision that says no.”
He further said “We don’t want our citizens’ data in the hands of the Chinese Communist Party,” Pompeo said. “I think every European country now understands this and is increasingly aware of it. And you’ll see them take actions consistent with that, including Croatia.”
Mike Pompeo is on an official one-week trip to the Eastern European Mediterranean region. He twitted about the trip and wrote “Superb trip to beautiful Croatia. I am proud of our shared commitment to enhancing our security cooperation, and appreciate Croatia’s role in advancing European energy independence.”
