Washington: US President Donald Trump said that China’s aggressive stance along LAC fits with larger pattern of expansionism, according to media reports.
These actions only confirm the true nature of the Chinese Communist Party, Trump said.
The US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had taken cognizance of China’s aggression in the region and said that Chinese expansionism is a major challenge of our times.
Prime Minister of Australia, Scott Morrison, also referred to the India-China standoff and said that tensions over territorial claims are rising across Indo-Pacific region.
The diplomatic relations between India and China have been stressed ever since the violent clashes on the night of June 15. The clash resulted in the death of 20 Indian soldiers.
