Washington is concerned in particular about the expansion of Huawei, the world's biggest maker of telecoms equipment, in Hungary and Poland.
"If that [Huawei] equipment is co-located where we have important American systems, it makes it more hard for us to partner alongside them", US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told journalists gathered at the US Embassy in Budapest.

Pompeo stopped in Hungary's capital Monday, where he visited the USA embassy as well as a statue of the late President Ronald Reagan in Budapest.
Pompeo said he had raised the concerns with Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto and would also do so with nationalist Prime Minister Viktor Orban, who has been criticized for seeking closer ties with Russian Federation and China and for increasingly authoritarian rule at home.
