Washington D.C.: US Secretary of State Michael Pompeo on Thursday said that he had reviewd with EU Foreign Ministers earlier this month about the “provocative military actions” of People’s Liberation Army (PLA), including “deadly border confrontations” with India.
“I spoke this month with EU Foreign Ministers, I got a lot of feedack on Chinese Communist Party (CCP), laid out a series of facts that talked about PLA’s provocative military actions including its continued aggression in the South China Sea, deadly border confrontations with India and threats against peaceful neighbours,” Pompeo said during the Brussels Forum virtual conference.
“There will be fewer US resources at certain places. They will be at other places as there is threat from the CCP to India, Vietnam, Indonesia, Malaysia and South China Sea. We will make sure we are postured appropriately to counter the PLA,” he said.
Pompeo had earlier lashed out at Chinese President Xi Jinping saying that he “failed to promise real transparency and accountablity” for Beijing’s role in “unleashing” the deadly coronavirus.
