Prominent United States Republican Senator Rick Scott says the United States supports India against China’s aggression

United States Opposes India Against China's Aggression: Prominent Senator

Unfortunately, we know that communist China never delivers on its commitments: Rick Scott


An influential US senator said on Friday that the United States supports India against Chinese aggression in eastern Ladakh along the Current Line of Control, congratulating the Indian government on continued efforts to negotiate a peaceful resolution of the border problem.

Republican Senator Rick Scott, in a letter dated July 2 to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, expressed his condolences for the loss of life of 20 Indian soldiers in the Galwan Valley.

“The United States supports India in its fight against Communist Chinese aggression and I commend its continued efforts to negotiate a peaceful resolution,” Scott said in the tweeted letter on Friday.

“Unfortunately, we know that Communist China never delivers on its commitments. Communist Chinese tyrants continue to steal technology and refuse to open their markets to foreign products as required by their agreement to become part of the World Trade Organization,” he wrote. .

He claimed that China continues to attack religious freedom by detaining more than a million Uighurs in internment and re-education camps and has failed to comply with the agreement to grant autonomy and freedom to Hong Kong, he said.

Scott said China is militarizing the South China Sea, despite having promised former President Barack Obama that it would not, and now he continues to try to assert his military dominance in his quest for world dominance.

“Communist China believes that to be strong, the United States, India and other freedom-loving countries must be weaker. They are cracking down on freedom and autonomy in Hong Kong, and continue to threaten Taiwan and India,” said.

If it continues down this path, the neighbors of communist China will have no choice but to treat it as a serious threat that military force uses against peaceful democratic powers, he wrote in the letter.

“As you continue to confront Communist China and Communist Party Secretary General Xi (Jinping), I want to offer aid in any way I can to the Republic of India, the world’s largest democracy and our ally. The United States always does. It will defend our allies and those who fight for freedom, “Scott added.

The armies of India and China have been locked in a bitter clash at multiple locations in eastern Ladakh for the past seven weeks. The tension escalated on multiple occasions after 20 Indian soldiers were killed in a violent clash in the Galwan Valley on June 15. The Chinese side also suffered casualties, but details have not yet been released.
