US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that the previous system of interaction between the United States and China has collapsed.
He stated this in the Richard Nixon Presidential Library in Yorba Linda during his speech on US-China relations.
“The former system of reckless interaction with China has collapsed. We cannot continue it, we must not return to it, “TASS quotes him.
The United States needs a strategy that protects the American economy and American way of life, he said.
Earlier, US President Donald Trump did not rule out that following the Chinese Consulate in Houston, other Chinese diplomatic missions in the country could be closed. The Chinese Foreign Ministry called the US decision to close the diplomatic mission “a unilateral political provocation” that violates the norms of international law.
