'The West is winning', Pompeo tells China, Russia
MUNICH (Reuters) - Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Saturday defended the United States' global role and launched a scathing attack on China and Russia, vowing that the West's ideals and values would prevail.
"I’m happy to report that the death of the transatlantic alliance is grossly exaggerated. The West is winning, and we’re winning together," Pompeo said in a speech at the Munich Security Conference.
