(The Diplomat, By Ankit Panda) Secretary of State Mike Pompeo called China out in a speech earlier this week for its use of "debt-trap diplomacy" as well as its actions in the South China Sea. The Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs responded by claiming that nations in the region can address diplomatic disputes in their own ways, pushing back heavily on Secretary Pompeo's comments. Pompeo's comments come in support of the Trump administration's "Free and Open Indo-Pacific" strategic plan, designed to challenge Chinese power in the Indo-Pacific region. <Accessed 2019-03-16>
