Sec. Pompeo: ‘We Must Also Engage and Empower the Chinese People’

‘Dynamic, freedom-loving people who are completely distinct from the Chinese Communist Party’

EXCERPT:

POMPEO: "But our approach can't just be about getting tough, that's unlikely to achieve the outcome that we desire. We must also engage and empower the Chinese people, a dynamic, freedom-loving people who are completely distinct from the Chinese Communist Party. That begins with in-person diplomacy. I've met — I've met Chinese men and women with great talent and diligence wherever I go. I met with Uyghurs and ethnic Kazakhs who escaped Xinjiang's concentration camps. I've talked with Hong Kong's democracy leaders, from Cardinal Zen to Jimmy Lai. Two days ago in London, I met with Hong Kong freedom fighter Nathan Law. And last month in my office, I heard the stories of Tiananmen Square survivors.”
