Is satelite navigation under threat?

An article in the Sun Newspaper today throws a shadow over the future of satellite navigation:

The report adds: "The EU will allow China to keep using its satelites in a conflict with America ... a danger that is prompting the US to consider how to shut down Galileo in an emergency."
