Washington: Targeting the Chinese Communist Party, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has said the former believes in international relations that are controlled in a way that will not create security, freedom and prosperity.
"I think the world, and that includes the American people, will continue to demand that the United States secure freedoms for them, and that includes pushing back against the challenge of our time," Mike Pompeo said during an interview with Hugh Hewitt of The Hugh Hewitt Show.
"That is the challenge of the Chinese Communist Party and its capacity and intention to expand its influence and ultimately deliver a world that is very different, one not governed by the rule of law, by respect for sovereignty, all the things that the world has come to know in the post-World War II environment," Pompeo said.
"And the Chinese Communist Party wants to upend with a very different theory of international relations, one dominated by the East, one controlled in a way that won’t create more security, freedom, more prosperity," he said.
