  • China: Pompeo's remarks are full of ignorance, arrogance, short-sightedness

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman described US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's anti-China remarks as a sign of his ignorance, arrogance and short-sightedness.

Iran PressAsia: Chian's Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin in response to the US Secretary of State's statement on Thursday that Beijing is the main threat of the current era, said: "Pompeo's goal is to secure Washington's selfish interests through political maneuvers, and that is very clear."

Pompeo and others like him are trying to turn the international community into a tool against China," Wenbin said. Neither the international community nor the Chinese people are intimidated by these actions and these anti-China's actions are doomed to failure," he said.

The Trump administration has taken a confrontational approach to China since taking office in January 2017.

Rising tariffs and trade wars, imposing sanctions on major Chinese companies including Huawei, strengthening cooperation with Taiwan, the widespread presence of US warships in the South China Sea, rhetoric against Beijing over the Coronavirus and the closure of the Chinese consulate in Houston, Texas are among the White House's latest efforts to increase pressure on Beijing strategically.
