Pompeo urges 'free nations' to change behaviour of CCP

Pompeo urges 'free nations' to change behaviour of CCP”

Pompeo said Washington had ordered China to close its consulate in Houston, Texas, this week because it had become a centre for espionage and operations to illegally obtain United States companies' trade secrets.

When Pompeo referenced the State Department's order this week to close down the Chinese consulate in Houston, the Nixon Library audience broke into a round of applause. Firefighters had reportedly been called to the building because papers were being burned after the U.S. gave consular workers three days to shut down the office.

It comes the day after the spectacular announcement of the closure of the Chinese consulate in the great city of Texas, imposed by Washington, crossing a new level in the unprecedented escalation between the two great rival powers.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's speech slamming China was an "angry lament" and "extended ideological rant" that would do little to change Beijing's behavior, said Daniel Russel, former assistant secretary of state for East Asian and Pacific affairs.

"On the U.S. side, President Richard Nixon started the process of normalizing China-U.S. relations, a contributor to the development of bilateral relationship", the representative stated.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told lawmakers during a trip to London that World Health Organization's (WHO) director Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus has been "bought" by China. Mr Pompeo said western engagement with China could not continue as it has.

Most Chinese people support their government most of the time, Daly said, citing 33 years of experience working in the country.

This "old paradigm" simply does not "work", ruled the minister.

The U.S. must not return to blindly engaging with Beijing on the latter's terms, Pompeo warned, "if we want to have a free 21st century, and not the Chinese century of which [President] Xi Jinping dreams". "We opened our arms to Chinese citizens, only to see the CCP exploit our free and open society", he said.

Pompeo's speech marked the fourth time in recent weeks that senior Trump administration officials took China to task on the public stage.

Mr Pompeo rejected China's position, calling it a clear threat to the world.

"We can not face this challenge alone".

China, meanwhile, has embarked on its own effort to build alliances with infrastructure and financial assistance packages to developing nations. It has established a bloc of nations that vote with it at various United Nations and other global institutions, some from which the Trump administration has withdrawn.

Last month, Washington designated Huawei and ZTE Corp as national security threats, saying they have close ties with the Chinese Communist Party and China's military apparatus.

In addition, the Commerce and Treasury departments have both announced new sanctions against China.

He certainly welcomed the "awakening" of certain countries, especially European ones, but also regretted the "timidity" of others, such as this "ally within NATO", which he did not have. appointed, reluctant according to him to defend the autonomy of Hong Kong for fear of losing its access to the vast Chinese market.
