The United States Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, defended this Thursday that China is practicing “new tyranny,” while asking the North American country and its allies to work “to change their behavior.”
“As President (Donald) Trump made very clear, we need a strategy that protects the American economy and our way of life. The free world must triumph over this new tyranny,” said Pompeo during a speech at the Nixon Library. .
According to Pompeo, “we must admit our truth, which should guide us in the years and decades to come.” “If we want a free 21st century and not the Chinese century that (Chinese President) Xi Jinping dreams of, the old paradigm of dealing with China will not work,” he said. “We cannot continue and we cannot return to that,” he said in his speech entitled “Communist China and the Future of the Free World”.
Pompeo has also stated that Washington-Beijing competition is a modern cold war and has stated in detail that “ensuring the Chinese Communist Party’s freedoms is the mission of our time and the United States is perfectly positioned to lead it” as reported by the network. CNN television.
