    As Chinese disengagement continues, India remains 'very cautious’

    Mike Pompeo also said the United States has to take a different path with regard to China as the previous policy of helping them open up their economy with the belief that this would lead to more political freedom has not worked, PTI reported.

    His comments made to Fox News come after India banned 59 Chinese-owned apps in a move that came amid tensions between India and China along the LAC in the aftermath of the Galwan Valley clash.

    Meanwhile, TikTok has said that it is stopping app operations in Hong Kong, reported AFP.

    The move by TikTok, owned by China-based ByteDance, came as Facebook, Google and Twitter put a hold on requests by Hong Kong's government or police force for information on users, following China's imposition of a sweeping new security law.
