China continues to bully its neighbours: Pentagon

-

WASHINGTON, Oct 26: China continues to bully its neighbours to try to coerce them into behaviour that is more in keeping with its national security or economic interests, the Pentagon said on Monday.

Pentagon Press Secretary John Kirby was speaking to reporters at a news conference.

#China continues to bully its neighbours to try to coerce them into behaviour that is more in keeping with China"s national security or economic interests. And we don"t believe that that is conducive to a free and open Indo-Pacific,% Kirby said.

The Biden administra­tion, he said, has put a real premium on bolstering and reinforcin­g its alliances and partnershi­ps in that area and making sure they have proper defensive capabiliti­es in place to deal with the security challenges that exist out there.

#So, we"re going to continue to work as hard as we can,% he said. $ PTI
