Proud of India for standing up to Chinese aggression: US Senator

Washington: A top US Senator has praised the Indian government for standing up to Chinese aggression in a border dispute, hoping this would prompt other countries to be fearless in their handling of China.

The Indian and Chinese armies have been locked in a bitter standoff in eastern Ladakh for the last eight weeks. The tension escalated manifold after a clash at Galwan Valley in which 20 Indian Army personnel were killed. The Chinese side also suffered casualties but it is yet to give out the details.

“I’m very proud of the fact that (Prime Minister Narendra) Modi in India is standing up to them (China). I’m very proud of what Canada is doing. Not every country is running and hiding in the corner,” Republican Senator John Kennedy told Fox News in an interview on Thursday.

“The United States and the international community has to make the Chinese Communist Party understand that we expect them to play by the rules,” he said.

“Now, other than the United States, you know how many other countries trust China? None, zero, nada. But they are scared. China is the second-largest economy. China uses its economic heft to bully other countries, and many other regions of the world are scared to stand up to them,” he said. But there are some exceptions, Kennedy said.

“Australia’s standing up to them. India is standing up to them. Canada is standing up to them. We need to join with our allies, not limited to Europe, and say to China, look, you are going to play by the rule. Or we’re not going to do business with you. That is all they will understand,” he asserted.

“Huawei is an important issue. We’ve got to convince France and Germany that they shouldn’t be scared. We’ll take the lead, but the world needs to join together,” he said.
