Mike Pompeo, US Defence Secretary Esper Likely To Push Trump's Anti-China Message In India

Outlook

Just a week before the US Presidential elections, two of President Donald Trump's top national security aides will visit India for meetings focused largely on countering China's growing global influence. As the bitter race between Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden winds down, the talks this week in New Delhi will aim to reinforce the president's anti-China campaign message.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Defence Secretary Mark Esper will meet their Indian counterparts for strategic and security talks on Tuesday, after which Pompeo will travel on to Sri Lanka, the Maldives and Indonesia. All the three countries are contending with a tug-of-war between Washington and Beijing, that has only intensified as Trump seeks to paint Biden as being weak on China.
