The repeated political attacks on China are still going on. The Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is taking his stand against the Chinese diplomats who have suggested to disregard the orders of the US government to move out of the property taken by their consulate.
Mike Pompeo called China as Communist China and stated a lot against the nation in his speech on Thursday in Nixon Library. Pompeo stated that if the world wants to have a free 21st century they must learn to admit the truth which would be the guide towards the future. He also added that Xi Jinping is not looking for a free 21st century but instead dreaming of a Chinese century. To end this, he suggested that the structure we have is not enough and we must discard China and not get back to our old ways of recognizing the nation.
The situation of China and the United States of America could be termed as the “Modern Day Cold War”. Pompeo also said that every American has to safeguard his country and get liberty from the clutches of the Chinese communist party. He states that America is acting as the leader in this campaign against the Chinese dream of global dominance.
The U.S.A. had ordered to close the Chinese consulate which is present in Houston. It is reported that the consulate was one of the major places of spying and carrying out information theft and therefore, the situation demanded its closure. The Chinese consulate was provided with the deadline until Friday to vacate the property.
It is said that concerned Chinese officials are urging the US government to take back the decision and if this is not done, they would also retaliate. The Chinese officials are also denying all the accuses of stealing information from the consulate.
