"I leave on Monday for a quick trip to the United Kingdom and Denmark, and I'm sure that the Chinese Communist Party and its threat to free peoples around the world will be high on top of that agenda," Pompeo told a news conference.

在美國大選的結果倒向拜登以後,華為副總裁張國威在接受 The Guardian 採訪時呼籲英國撤銷針對華為的 5G 禁令,讓華為重新參與到當地的 5G 建設當中。在他看來,英方此前之所以推出禁令是迫於來自川普政府的壓力。這是基於「美國而非英國本身對華為的認知」,這種認知「與安全無關」,實際上是為了「中美之間的貿易戰」。

今年七月時,英國政府宣佈計劃在 2027 年結束前將華為產品從本國的 5G 網路中去除,上個月國防委員會還特意發佈了報告催促政府加緊執行相關禁令。不過在更早的時候,英國確實考慮過讓華為有限度地參與 5G 網路建設。但美國在此事上的持續施壓(比如國務卿 Mike Pompeo 希望英方「重新審視」情況),可能最終還是對英國的決策造成了一定的影響。

在採訪過程中,張國威也強調在這樣一個需要同時面對新冠疫情和脫歐危機的特殊時期,去除華為的舉動可能會給英國的發展造成不小的打擊。禁令的存在可能會「進一步擴大英國在數位領域中的南北差距」,華為希望英國政府能「嘗試尋找更好的解決辦法」。
