The US ambassador to Australia has attempted to iron out a diplomatic wrinkle after Mike Pompeo appeared to imply sensitive information-sharing between the two countries may be at risk over Victorian participation in China’s Belt and Road Initiative.The ambassador, Arthur Culvahouse Jr, said in a statement issued late yesterday that he wanted to “set the record straight” after seeing the headlines that arose after the secretary of state’s interview on Sunday morning.Culvahouse said the US had “absolute confidence in the Australian government’s ability to protect the security of its telecommunications networks and those of its Five Eyes partners” and it commended Australia’s leadership on the issue of 5G network security.Insisting Pompeo had been answering questions about a hypothetical, the ambassador said the notion that Australia would pursue initiatives risking the integrity of networks was “a very remote hypothetical”.The diplomatic clean-up stems from an interview Pompeo gave to Sky News Australia’s self-styled Outsiders program early yesterday (notwithstanding the fact the US secretary of state would arguably fit the very definition of an insider).When asked about the Victorian state government’s participation in Xi Jinping’s signature infrastructure scheme, Pompeo urged the citizens of Australia to scrutinise any proposals “incredibly closely”, saying while the US would continue to work with “great partners like Australia”, his country “will not take any risk to our telecommunications infrastructure, any risk to the national security elements of what we need to do with our Five Eyes partners”.“I don’t know the nature of those projects precisely, but to the extent they have an adverse impact on our ability to protect telecommunications from our private citizens, or security networks for our defence and intelligence communities, we will simply disconnect, we will simply separate.
