US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Thursday lashed out at China, saying that the events of his recent incursions into China, India and Bhutan showed his intentions. He said that under President Xi Jinping, China is trying to see if it does, then it will see opposition from other countries. Let me tell you that since May 5, there has been a sharp deadlock in many areas along the Line of Actual Control in East Ladakh since May 5. In June, there was a violent clash between the soldiers of the two countries in the Galvan Valley, in which 20 Indian soldiers lost their lives.
At the same time, China has recently claimed its claim on the Sakteng Wildlife Sanctuary of Bhutan in the Global Environment Facility (GEF) Council and has opposed funding of the project.
Pompeo said during the House Foreign Affairs Committee’s congressional hearing on Thursday that ‘I think China has been trying to give a message to the world from these antics for decades, but after General Secretary Xi Jinping comes into power He is definitely doing so. He said that China wants to increase its reach and its power.
Pompeo said, ‘They talk of bringing socialism mixed with the characters of Chinese rule. But the real estate that they have now claimed in Bhutan, and the recent incursions into India, are all showing China’s true intentions and they are watching, testing whether the rest of the world is threatening them and its Will you oppose this rob or not?
He said that ‘I can now say with more confidence that the world is ready for this. We have a lot of work to do and we have to be serious about it. Pompeo, in its statement, informed the committee that India has banned 106 Chinese mobile applications.
