Keeping in mind China’s growing aggression and destabilizing practices, we should have an open and independent Indo-Pacific region for all of us and We stand firmly together. The United States and India stand to deal with all kinds of threats, not just those generated by the SCCP. Our bilateral defense cooperation continues to grow.”

    China was the center of discussion even before the talks and according to estimates, there was a clear and common view with China between the two countries. After the meeting, a joint statement was issued in which the two countries resolved to increase cooperation with each other.

    The US Secretary of State said that the Communist Party of China is not friendly about democracy, the ambiguity between each other, legal rules, and freedom of navigation, which is the basis of an independent and open indo-pacific region.

    The official Twitter of Mike Pompeo reveals that he went to the National War Memorial where he paid tribute to the 20 Indian military personnel killed by China’s PLA in the Galvan Valley. Referring to this in his statement, he said that during the visit, he also went to the Summer Memorial to pay tribute to the martyrs who sacrificed in honor of the world’s largest democracy.
