Meanwhile, the President of Federated States of Micronesia was apprehensive about the deal and said it is “the single most game-changing proposed agreement in the Pacific in any of our lifetimes” and “threatens to bring a new cold war era at best, and a world war at worst.”
“There has been general support from the 10 countries. But of course, there are some concerns on some specific issues and we have agreed that these two documents will be discussed afterwards until we have reached an agreement,” Fiji Qian Bo said as quoted by the media.
According to the media, the entire Pacific region is suddenly becoming the latest arena for the war of attrition between the United States and China. (ANI)
