BREAKING Pompeo Makes Surprise Visit to Iraq Amid Iran Escalation

The U.S. said this week that it was rushing an aircraft carrier group to the Middle East to deter or respond to any Iranian attack.

The prospect of Chinese access to United Kingdom infrastructure prompted furious denunciations from Washington, led by Pompeo, including threats that the U.S. could end electronic surveillance and intelligence coordination with Britain.

Pompeo said Tehran's announcement was "intentionally ambiguous" and Washington would wait and see what actions it took.

"We don't want anyone interfering in their country, certainly not by attacking another nation inside of Iraq and there was complete agreement", Pompeo said.

However, Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt insisted the Government has yet to make a decision on Huawei.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo made an unannounced, dead-of-night jaunt to Iraq on Tuesday, showing support for the country's government in the face as escalating tensions between the U.S. and Iran.

Mr Hunt said: "With respect to Huawei and 5G, we have not made our final decision as a government". Immediately prior to Pompeo's arrival in London, he cancelled a scheduled trip to Germany in order to visit Iraq.

The "campaign to continue to prevent ISIS terror inside of Iraq itself is something that's very central.to the Iraqi government", Pompeo said.

In the latest United States move, the Pentagon said it was sending several massive, nuclear-capable B-52s to the region.

"We don't believe you can have those technologies in your systems and still have a trusted network", he said, emphasizing the "real risk if countries choose that path that we won't be able to participate in those networks because of the risk". "Since our exit from the Iran deal, which is broken beyond fix, the United States has put forward 12 conditions that offer the basis of a comprehensive agreement with Iran".
