Secretary of State Michael Pompeo came close to issuing an us-or-them ultimatum to nations buying from Huawei Technology Co, saying in Hungary that contracts with the Chinese networking giant could limit the availability of US equipment.

“If that equipment is co-located where we have important American systems, it makes it more difficult for us to partner alongside them,” Pompeo told reporters in Budapest, when asked what message he would send about Huawei.
