NEW YORK -- U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Thursday that Israel risks losing security cooperation with Washington if it does not limit its ties with China, as American concerns about Jerusalem's relationship with Beijing grow.

"I want to make sure that every country is wide-eyed and awake with respect to the threats that are posed by China and then make sure they understand as well America will have to make decisions too," Pompeo said in an interview with Israel's Channel 13 during a visit to Jerusalem that was published by the State Department.
