Tension has been continuing between India and China since May this year. Meanwhile, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has said that China has deployed 60,000 troops along the northern border with India. Pompeo reprimanded China’s behavior over tensions at the border and said Beijing had become a threat to the Quad countries.
Foreign ministers of the Indo-Pacific countries are known as the Quad Group. Quad countries include India, America, Japan and Australia. Foreign ministers of these countries met on Tuesday in Tokyo, the capital of Japan. This was the first meeting of foreign ministers since the onset of the corona virus epidemic. The meeting of the foreign ministers took place in the Indo-Pacific, South China Sea amid China’s aggressive military attitude and tensions with India on the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in eastern Ladakh.
Pompeo returned to the US after attending a second quad meeting with his counterparts from India, Japan and Australia in Tokyo. In an interview with ‘The Guy Benson Show’ on Friday, Pompeo said that the Indian Army is looking at the deployment of 60,000 Chinese troops on the northern border.
He said, I was with my counterparts from India, Australia, and Japan. I went to attend the quad meeting. It is a format that includes four countries with large democracies and powerful economies. Each of these countries is threatened by the Chinese Communist Party.
Pompeo said that India had a face-to-face battle with the Chinese army in the Himalayas, where there was also a skirmish between the armies of the two countries. China has now started deploying a large number of troops along the border with India. 60 thousand soldiers have been deployed on the border from the Chinese Army.
He said, the Communist Party of China is a threat to all. When Australia said that China should investigate the corona virus from Wuhan, the Chinese Communist Party threatened and intimidated it.
