China’s claims in India, Bhutan- an indication of their intentions, says US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on July 30, said that China’s territorial claims in Bhutan and in recent instances of India are an indication of its intentions to find out whether the rest of the world is going to push back.  

The remarks by Mr. Pompeo came during a Congressional hearing on July 30, where he further added, “They talk about bringing socialism with Chinese characteristics to the world. Claims that they have now made for real estate in Bhutan, the incursion that took place in India, these are indicative of Chinese intentions, and they are testing, they are probing the world to see if we are going to stand up to their threats and their bullying.” 

China recently at the Global Environment Facility (GEF) Council staked claim over Bhutan’s Sakteng Wildlife Sanctuary and also opposed funding to the project.
