U.S. Secretary of Defense Mark Esper has announced that China poses the biggest threat to the West, with Russia coming in second place. “In fact, under President Xi’s rule, the Chinese Communist Party is heading even faster and further in the wrong direction,” he commented at the Munich Security Conference in Germany. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo also followed suit by discussing how Chinese tech companies were being used as a trojan horse for their intelligence operations. China’s foreign minister, Wang Yi, also attended the conference and claimed that what the U.S. had said is a lie and that Britain has allowed Huawei to build 5G mobile network connections in the country.
