Trump sees Chinese aggression in Ladakh as sign of its 'true nature'

By Arul Louis

New York, Jul 2 (IANS): US President Donald Trump sees China's aggressive action along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in Ladakh confirming the Chinese Communist Party's "true nature", according to his Spokesperson Kayleigh McEnany.

Asked at her briefing about China's attack on Indian troops, McEnany said, "Trump had said that China's aggressive stance along the India-China border fits in with the larger pattern of Chinese aggression in other parts of the world. And these actions only confirm the true nature of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)."

She said Trump was closely monitoring the situation with India and China and added, "Both India and China have expressed a desire to deescalate and we support a peaceful resolution of the current situation."

Asked about India's decision to ban TikTok and 58 other Chinese phone apps, she referred to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's statement earlier in the day.

He called the apps potential "appendages of the CCP's surveillance state" and welcomed India's decision to ban them.

"India's 'clean app' approach will boost India's sovereignty, will also boost India's integrity and national security as the Indian government itself has stated," he added.

China is building up troops along the LAC, where a clash without firearms between Indian troops and China's Peoples Liberation Army resulted in the deaths of at least 20 Indian Army personnel including a colonel.

China has refused to say how many of its personnel were killed.

India's Lieutenant General Harinder Singh and China's Major General Liu Lin met on Tuesday at the LAC in an effort to defuse the situation.

    The US President has indirectly admitted that India has become new proxy for China. For years US is trying to establish its base in India that was rejected by previous Congress government.

    But PM Modi's government has surrender the national interest of India like Afghanistan, Iraq, Saudi, Philippines, South Korea and so on. The US once establish its base will live on its own will. It will come as friend to offer help and then country that host will be the heavy bills for maintaining its forces and services.

    Now instead of reaching solution to Indo-China agreement, the tension will raised so much so that it will force India to buy outdated weapon system there by maintain the profitability of manufacturing sector ensuring the jobs to Americans.

    The PM Modi's foreign policy is going to make India backrupt.

    True, Communist chinese brought out this weapon grade virus to do economic warfare with non communist countries of the world to wreck their economy, to stop vital military production , to promote starvation by creating shortages through lockdown and job loss because of this virus and when half done then incursions and invasion.

    How godless they are when world is suffering they plan incursions also incite neighboring countries against us by giving them hugh loans, building their infrastructure etc.. temporary they might use them finally bring their communist control over them. These communists need to be given fitting reply by all countries united together.
