Chinese efforts to exert covert influence over the West are just as concerning as Russian subversion, the director of the CIA has said.
Mike Pompeo told the BBC that the Chinese “have a much bigger footprint” to do this than the Russians do.
As examples he cited efforts to steal US commercial information and infiltration of schools and hospitals – and this extended to Europe and the UK.
Mr Pompeo was a hardline Republican congressman before becoming CIA chief.
