Pompeo says Indo-Pacific cooperation against China now more critical than ever

TOKYO (Reuters) - U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said it was more critical now than ever for the regional allies in Indo-Pacific to collaborate against what he called Chinese Communist Party’s “exploitation, coercion and corruption.”

Speaking at the start of a Quad meeting, a gathering of the foreign ministers of United States, Australia, India and Japan, Pompeo said all the partners were seeking a free and open Indo-Pacific.
