US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo mentioned India-China stand off while attacking China in Marc Thiessen and Danielle Pletka of AEI’s ”What The Hell Is Going On” Podcast.
China increasing forces along LAC
Mike Pompeo said that China had moved its forces up to north of India along Line of Actual Control (LAC) in Ladakh and Sikkim. He said that both the armies building up their strength was a clear indication of escalating tension. He further said that the hardening of positions continued even two separate face-offs between India and China.
China hiding truth in coronavirus pandemic
Pompeo alleged that the Communist Party of China (CPC) continued to hide and delay the response on coronavirus pandemic that began in Wuhan in China. Also, he alleged that the CPC robbed the Chinese people in China and Hong Kongers in Hong Kong of their freedom. He said that the authoritarian regime in China had an impact on the people around the world.
Mike Pompeo said that the above mentioned two incidents reveal the true nature of the Communist Party of China. He alleged that China continued to steal intellectual property and advancing in the South China Sea.
US can stop China
Pompeo said that the US had the responsibility and capability to safeguard the interests of its citizens from China. He said that China had developed its military capabilities only to threaten its neighbours. And that the US had responded to China in the real way for the past two decades.
