US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Friday said that China has deployed 60,000 soldiers along the Line of Actual Control with India, news agency PTI reported. The foreign ministers from the Indo-Pacific nations known as the Quad countries, the US, India, Japan and Australia met in Tokyo for the first time since the Covid-19 pandemic began. Mike Pompeo hit out at Beijing for its aggressive behavior and the threat it poses to the biggest democracies.

He said he was with his counterparts from India, Australia, and Japan – a format that is called the Quad, four big democracies, four powerful economies, four nations, each of whom has real risk associated with the threats imposed by the Chinese Communist Party. And they see it in their home countries too, he added.   

The meeting was held on Tuesday in Tokyo in the backdrop of China’s aggressive military behavior in the Indo-Pacific, South China Sea and along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in eastern Ladakh.

After attending the second Quad ministerial with his counterparts from India, Australia and Japan, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told the Guy Benson Show in an interview that Indians are seeing 60,000 Chinese soldiers on their northern border. Pompeo described his meeting with External affairs Minister S Jaishankar as productive. Both the leaders underscored the need to work together to advance peace, prosperity and security in the Indo-Pacific and around the globe.

Mike Pompeo added that the West allowed the Chinese Communist Party to walk all over the world for decades now. He targeted the previous governments and said the previous administration only encouraged China’s bad behaviour and its malign activity. They bent a knee too often and allowed Beijing to steal Americas’ properties, its intellect and the millions of jobs that came along with it, he said in the interview.

In another interview with Larry O’Connor, Pompeo said that Quad countries need America as their ally in this fight. But they’ve all seen it, whether it’s the Indians, who are actually having a physical confrontation with the Chinese up in the Himalayas in the northeastern part of India, the Chinese have now begun to amass huge forces in against India the north or whether it’s the Australians who did the simple thing of saying the Chinese screwed this deal up with the virus, and in exchange for that the Chinese Communist Party began to extort, coerce, bully the Australians, Pompeo added.

According to reports, the now-deceased men broke into a closed coal mine in Kalri under Dhanpuri police station to rob scrap iron by stripping junked machines, while one of their partners stood outside to stand guard.

Police said that four men were already when the rescue team found them inside the mine.
