US 'wouldn't endorse' Rahul Gandhi's remark on Pakistan, China

| @indiablooms | 03 Feb 2022, 01:14 pm

A day after Congress MP Rahul Gandhi tore apart the Narendra Modi government on multiple issues including foreign policy, the United States has said it will not "endorse" the Indian opposition leader's remark on Pakistan and China, which are the two hostile neighbours of New Delhi.

Slamming the government's alleged flawed international policy, Gandhi said in the Lok Sabha, "Ask yourself why you are not able to get a guest on Republic Day. We are completely isolated and surrounded... You have brought Pakistan and China together and this is the single biggest crime you could have committed against the people of India."

When asked about the ties between Pakistan and China, US State Department spokesperson Ned Price said as quoted by NDTV, "I will leave it to the Pakistanis and the PRC to speak to their relationship. I certainly would not - would not endorse those remarks."

Price added, "We've made the point all along that it is not a requirement for any country around the world to choose between the United States and China. It is our intention to provide choices to countries when it comes to what the relationship with the United States looks like.

"And we think the partnership with the United States conveys a series of advantages that countries typically would not find when it comes to the sorts of partnerships that - partnerships may be the wrong term - the sorts of relationships that the PRC has sought to have around the world."
