Pompeo urged to form a "new Alliance of democracies" against China

U.S. Secretary of state Mike Pompeo on Thursday called for a "new Alliance of democracies" to counter China.

He warned that "if the free world will not change Communist China, Communist China will change us." The Secretary of state added that now "there can be no return to past practices just because they are comfortable, or convenient".

"Maybe it's time for a new group of like-minded people, a new Alliance of democracies. We have the tools. Now we need the will", - concluded Pompeo.

The Secretary was broadcast on the Department's website.
