Pompeo says US wants to create coalition to counter China

The United States intends to create a global coalition to combat the Chinese threat. This was announced by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo at a joint press conference with British Foreign Minister Dominic Raab, reports Reuters.

Pompeo said the American authorities hope they will be able to create a coalition that will try to convince China that it is not profitable for them to “behave this way.” According to him, the United States wants states that understand what freedom and democracy are to understand the threat that comes from the Chinese Communist Party.

The secretary of state called China an “aggressor” who kept silent about the outbreak of coronavirus and then used the pandemic for his own purposes in a “shameful” way.
