Trump: Ireland shares U.S. concerns about Huawei
President Donald Trump says Ireland shares U.S. concerns that allowing China’s Huawei Technologies to help build communications networks threatens global security. The U.S. is pressing its longtime allies to ban the tech giant amid concerns that China will use the company to conduct espionage and obtain data. Trump met Wednesday with Ireland’s Prime Minister Leo Varadkar during his first presidential visit to the country where he has a golf club. Varadkar says the Irish government has concerns about Huawei and will do its own security analysis on the company. Trump says he’s dealing very closely on the issue with both Ireland and Britain.

The United States and Turkey have been NATO allies since 1952 and share some vital interests, but harmonizing their priorities has been particularly difficult in recent years. These priorities sometimes diverge irrespective of who leads the two countries, based on contrasting geography, threat perceptions, and regional roles.
