It may be a world away from NATO, but the Chinese telecom titan Huawei — and the United States’ desire to keep it out of the security grid of western democracies — will be a major topic of conversation among allied leaders this week. Senior Trump administration officials telegraphed last week that it “is not in any of the allies’ interests” to allow the company into their 5G wireless networks. That message was directed at Britain and Canada. And it likely will not be lost on Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who leaves Monday for the Dec. 3-4 NATO summit in London. His government has yet to decide whether to accept Huawei’s participation in the yet-to-be-established network.
