US to reduce intel sharing with Israel over Beijing ties - Pompeo

The United States is ready to limit intelligence sharing with Israel if the Jewish state doesn't amend ties with China, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told Axios on Thursday in an interview.

"When China engages in spying through its commercial state-owned enterprises and presents risks through its technology systems, companies like Huawei, which present real risk to the people of Israel - When those things happen, we want make sure that countries know about it, know the risks and then countries will make their own sovereign decisions," the secretary said.

During recent years, Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu worked on increasing trade ties with China, as well as infrastructural projects cooperation, including one for a new Haifa port, known for US Navy presence.
