Pompeo Issues Stark Warning to Russia, China
Saturday, 9 November 2019 00:03 WIB | GLOBAL |Global

Three decades after the fall of the Berlin Wall, the United States said Washington and its allies are still confronting formidable communist adversaries and the free world needs to continue to defend against threats from Russia and China.

In a speech near Berlin's iconic Brandenburg Gate, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Friday that Russia œinvades its neighbors and slays political opponents, adding Russian authorities œuse police raids and torture against Crimean Tartars and Ukrainians who are working in opposition to Russian aggression.

The top U.S. diplomat also hit out at Beijing.

Pompeo is in Germany this week to mark the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. On November 9, 1989, the demolition of the Berlin Wall brought to an end to a divided Germany, and was followed by the eradication of communism in Europe, and eventually the fall of the Soviet Union.

Pompeo on Friday drew a distinction between the communist government and the Chinese people, saying, œI wouldn't characterize it as a conflict between the United States and China, when asked during a moderated discussion if the two countries are having a new Cold War.

In Hong Kong, as ongoing anti-government protests show no sign of an immediate end, Pompeo said the United States had urged China to maintain its commitment to the citizens of Hong Kong, adding people there will œfind their own path forward.

Pompeo is scheduled to meet with German Chancellor Angela Merkel later Friday. He met with Defense Minister Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer earlier in the day.

When asked how committed the U.S. is to the peace in Ukraine, Pompeo said he had supported giving defensive weapon systems to Ukraine, adding the U.S. had provided the tools they needed to protect themselves from Russia.
