China’s incursions a test to see world reaction: Pompeo

WASHINGTON: China’s recent aggression in India’s eastern Ladakh and claims for the real estate in Bhutan are indicative of its intentions, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has said, asserting that Beijing under President Xi Jinping is testing the world to see if anyone is going to stand up to its threats and bullying.
Indian and Chinese troops have been locked in the LAC standoff in Ladakh since May 5 and the situation deteriorated following the Galwan clashes. China also recently staked claim over the Sakteng Wildlife Sanctuary in Bhutan at the Global Environment Facility Council and opposed funding to the project.
Pompeo, during a Congressional hearing on Thursday, told the House Foreign Affairs Committee “the actions are entirely consistent with what they have been signalling to the world for decades, you might even argue since 1989, but certainly since General Secretary Xi came to power”.
