WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump and Britain’s Prime Minister Boris Johnson “discussed critical regional and bilateral issues, including telecommunications security” in a conversation on Tuesday, White House spokesman Judd Deere said in a statement.

Earlier on Tuesday, London defied Washington by granting Chinese telecommunications firm Huawei Technologies Ltd a limited role in Britain’s 5G mobile network.
