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
