During an online conference on democracy at Copenhagen in Denmark, he said, People’s Liberation Army of China has escalated border tensions with India, the world’s largest democracy.
Pompeo said, China is militarising the South China Sea and illegally claiming more territory there, threatening vital sea lanes. He said democracies and freedom-loving peoples of the world needed to come together to tackle China.
Pompeo said Chinese President Xi Jinping has green-lighted a brutal campaign of repression against Chinese Muslims, a human rights violation on a scale we have not seen since World War II.
Pompeo said China lied about the coronavirus and let it spread to the rest of the world, while pressuring the WHO to assist its cover-up campaign.
