"You are a great partner, you share information - unlike some countries that obfuscate and hide that information," the top U.S. diplomat told Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in a televised joint statement before they met privately.

Netanyahu described the coronavirus as a "plague", and added: "There is something else plaguing our region, which is unremitting Iranian terror and aggression." Pompeo responded by playing up the Trump administration's decisions to quit the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran and press sanctions against it, saying: "The campaign that we have been part of to reduce the resources that Ayatollah has ... has borne fruit, has been successful."

Indians have done their best to respond to China's aggressive actions: Mike Pompeo

Speaking on India-China border tensions, US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo said, "I have spoken with Foreign Minister S Jaishankar a number of times about this. Chinese took incredibly aggressive actions and Indians have done their best to respond to that. There aren't many neighbours that can satisfactorily say that they know where their sovereignty ends and the Chinese Communist Party will respect that. That is certainly true now for people of Bhutan. The world must come together to respond to this. This increasing revisionist effort that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is engaged in is something that President Trump has taken incredibly seriously." He further said, "World has seen true colours of Chinese Communist Party and I am convinced more than ever that free people of the world will come to understand the threat. The impact General Secy Xi Jinping has on the world is not good for free and democracy loving people."
