Amid rising tensions between China and the United States, US Secretary of States Mike Pompeo alleged China for stealing aviation related intellectual property and said that China poses long term challenges to the United States across every front.
On Thursday, Pompeo told American radio host Tony Katz, “China is a long-term challenge. This challenge is across every front”. He said that China poses challenges to US in South China Sea, trade, intellectual property and across many other fronts but the President has begun pushing back China on these fronts.

Pompeo said, “Just this week, ten Chinese were indicted for stealing intellectual property, aviation-related intellectual property”. He said, “These are not the types of actions that countries that truly want to be part of the global community engage in, and we’re pushing back against China across every one of those fronts to try and achieve that on behalf of the American people”.
Pompeo mentioned about the nuclear threats from Russia to US and to the world and said that President Trump is taking tough decisions to increase pressure on Russia and its leadership.
He said, “Russia is a much smaller economy, but still maintains an enormously large nuclear arsenal, which threatens not only the United States but the world. President Trump has been really tough. We have done things to put pressure on Vladimir Putin and Russia in a way that no previous administration has”.
Recently US President Donald Trump said that US is going to have a great trade deal with China, he added that if US-China fails to achieve the trade agreement then he will impose additional tariffs on $267 billion Chinese goods being imported to China.
