US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo believes that China, led by the Communist Party, is striving for world domination and should resist these efforts. This opinion was expressed by the diplomat, speaking at a gala dinner in New York at the Hudson Institute.

“The communist government in China today and the people of China are not the same things. It seeks and uses methods that have created problems for the United States and for the whole world, and we must all together confront these challenges,” said Pompeo.

He also emphasized that “it is more unrealistic to ignore the fundamental differences between the systems in our countries. The differences in these systems have a negative impact on America’s national security.”

According to Pompeo, President Donald Trump has sounded the alarm about China from the first day of his tenure.

“Today, we finally realized the extent to which the Communist Party is really hostile to the United States and our values,” he said, adding that this understanding was made possible “thanks to the leadership of President Trump.”

“The Chinese Communist Party is a Marxist-Leninist party focused on the struggle and international domination — just listen to the words of their leaders,” said the Secretary of State.

According to him, the military potential of China “far exceeds what they need for self-defense.”

At the same time, Pompeo said that the United States does not seek confrontation with China and wants to have an open, competitive market system with which it would be mutually beneficial. He said that the first steps in this direction can be seen at the first stage of a bilateral trade transaction, which is close to completion.

“I am optimistic, I think that we will get there. This is a good thing, a place where we can work together. I think that this will show the presence of common ground,” — said Pompeo.
