US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, in an interaction with US radio-show host Larry O'Connor, batted for close ties with India amid the continuing standoff with China over Ladakh.
Pompeo was quoted by AFP as saying "The Chinese have now begun to amass huge forces against India in the north. The world has awakened. The tide's begun to turn. And the United States under President Trump's leadership has now built out a coalition that will push back against the threat."
It may be mentioned that Pompeo has remained vocal, standing in support of India since the border standoff began in May.
