US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has hit out against China for its aggressive military behaviour and the threat posed by the Chinese Communist Party to the Quad group of countries, including India as well as Beijing’s response to the handling of the coronavirus pandemic.
In several interviews after his return from the Quad ministerial meeting in Japan, Mike Pompeo pointed out how the Chinese have begun to amass huge forces against India and that Indians are seeing 60,000 Chinese soldiers on their northern border.
Speaking on The Guy Benson Show, Pompeo said: “A million people are now dead because the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) didn’t respond to the Wuhan virus in a way that they should have. Economies have been destroyed as a direct result of that. Indians are seeing 60,000 Chinese soldiers on their northern border.”
The US Secretary of State reiterated this in an interview with Larry O’Conner while speaking about his “important trip” in which he met his Indian counterpart S Jaishankar along with those from Japan and Australia, to further efforts to “build out the coalition that is working to ensure that the Chinese Communist Party doesn’t become the global hegemon that it seeks to become.”
“The Chinese have now begun to amass huge forces against India in the north,” Pompeo told Larry O’Conner.
Pompeo also talked about the important allies of the United States in Asia.
