“We welcome all nations to compete in free markets openly and transparently,” US Secretary of State Michael Pompeo said in an interview with El Comercio, ONAreports.

Answering the question on competing with China, Russia in Latin America, Pompeo said that Russia and China do not share the certain values.

“We’re convinced that democratic values and institutions, the things that we care so deeply about – basic human rights, things that don’t exist in China – I think the South American people see that. They see the horrors of a million Uighurs being held in China.  They see the Orwellian information state, the police state that China is becoming.”

“They see that communism has failed the Russian people,” he said.

US Secretary of State said that people of South America understand that “they should interact with, do business with, and partner with countries that share their value sets: freedom, faith, liberty, rule of law.”
