Pompeo will testify at a Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing for the first time in 15 months, discussing the State Department's annual budget request.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has told a congressional committee the Chinese Communist Party is "the central threat of our times" and he is proud Australia, Japan and the United Kingdom have increased maritime manoeuvres in the South China Sea.

Mr Pompeo praised Australia and condemned China during this week's AUSMIN talks with Australian Foreign Minister Marise Payne and Defence Minister Linda Reynolds in Washington DC, and he continued the tone before the Senate committee.

We imposed sanctions on Russian over 360 individuals and companies for violation of their human rights, Russia's support for the murderous Assad regime for the use of mercenaries and henchmen all over the world, " said Pompeo.

Pompeo told senators that the "incursion" against India and the "real-estate claim" against Bhutan and other conflicts around the world were indicative of Chinese intentions to expand their reach and to bring "socialism with Chinese characteristics" to the world. There " s a lot more work to do, and we need to be serious about it", said the top American diplomat.

"Our diplomatic efforts are working and momentum is building to mitigate the threats that the Chinese Communist Party presents".

The House subpoena, directed to Pompeo, requires that the records be turned over by August 7, said the statement. "Japan led the G-7's condemnation of China's national security law targeting Hong Kong", he said.

Pompeo said the US, Australia, India, and Japan have "reinvigorated the Quad" as part of an effort to confront China through multilateral bodies. I asked you specifically, have you raised - there are public reports, very well documented - that the Russians were supposedly paying bounties to kill our service members.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who has been constantly criticising the Chinese Communist Party's actions against Asian countries, had earlier this month asserted that the world is waking up to the "threats from China" and it will be "confronted like never before" by democracies.
