China reveals its most advanced nuclear-armed intercontinental ballistic missile, the DF-41, at the National Day parade in Beijing on October 1, 2019.

BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:40 P.M.) – The U.S. and its western allies are forming a new anti-China alliance to combat the Asian nation’s influence throughout the world.

According to Sputnik, the new group, the Inter-Parliamentary Alliance on China, consists of eight countries from across the world, including three U.N. Security Council members.

The report said the group will be comprised of the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, Japan, Norway, Sweden, Germany, and the rest of the European Union.

In a statement, the group said that it aims to, “construct appropriate and coordinated responses, and to help craft a proactive and strategic response on issues related to the People’s Republic of China.”

The new group’s co-chairs will consist of U.S. Republican Senator Marco Rubio and Democratic Senator Robert Menendez, former Japanese Defense Minister Gen Nakatani, European Parliament foreign affairs committee member Miriam Lexmann and well-known UK Conservative member of parliament Iain Duncan Smith.

“The time has come for democratic countries to unite in a common defence of our shared values. Delighted to be co-chairing the Inter-Parliamentary Alliance on China,” Tweeted Duncan Smith.

China needs to strengthen its economic and military ties with other victims of US and Zionist evil, namely Russia, Iran, Syria, Iraq, Cuba, Nicaragua and Venezuela. China should focus on arming Iran and protecting its southern flank and One Belt, which is the future of Eurasia and the world.
