However, compared with the slander of China remarks made by senior US officials, the counter-attack by many Latin American countries is more brilliant.
According to the New York Times, during a visit to Panama, Pompeio warned President Juan Carlos Barrera that Panama could become a beachhead in the western hemisphere for Chinas growing economic influence. He stressed that Panamanian people should be cautious when considering establishing business ties with China.

The report quotes Pompeio as saying that he intends to tell the entire Latin American region that when China knocks on the door, they do not necessarily bring in the interests of your citizens, and that countries must be wary of Chinese companies with incredibly good agreements. However, Peng Pao refused to reveal which items were problematic.
According to the New York Times, Pompeios warning is one of the clearest expressions of growing anxiety among senior U.S. officials about Chinas global economic activities, especially those involving loans and infrastructure projects.
The local government and people seem to be totally unapproved of Pompeios worries about Latin American countries, even ironically saying that he is not ashamed to speak.
In an interview with local media, Prime Minister Brown of Antigua and Barbuda clearly responded that Pompeios remarks were no doubt misleading and that the United States should be ashamed of its policy actions in the region. He believes that without Chinas assistance, the development of the Caribbean region will not have such a bright future.

The United States should learn from China, not waste resources on useless provocation and some sort of war, and end meaningless, stupid conflicts and ideological struggles as soon as possible, Brown said.
Finally, he thanked China once again: Chinas help to us has exceeded its traditional obligations, and now we can develop our own education, health care, roads, airports, seaports and so on, really grateful.
The prime minister himself returned, and the people in the country expressed strong support in the social media. Someone said: the prime ministers speech is too powerful. The United States will only threaten, threaten and sanction small countries, rather than providing assistance like China.
More netizens agreed, calling it an independent sovereign state with the right to choose who is its partner. The West will only force us to submit by means of force, but the future of the world is beyond their control.
Some people directly criticize the United States small belly chicken intestines, see no other countries to help small Latin American countries, afraid that their regional influence will be overwhelmed...
Reference video found that, in fact, not only Antigua and Barbuda are openly opposed to Pompeios speech, a number of Latin American leaders have voiced.
Venezuelan President Maduro condemned Pompeios deliberate attempt to undermine the friendly relations between Latin American countries and China. Venezuela will not listen to it, but will firmly cooperate with China for common development.
According to local media reports, Maduro said in a conversation with Chinese entrepreneurs: We do not accept the United States to instigate relations with the Central Committee. Venezuela opposes Pompeios instigation of relations between Latin America and the Caribbean and China during his visit to Panama, and we adhere to the path of common interests.
Then, Prime Minister Skerrit of Dominica also spoke in defense of China-Dominica relations. I have to lament the malicious remarks made against China. These people are really stupid. I can say quite frankly that, as the Prime Minister of Dominica and the person who has the most dealings with China, China has never made any undue demands on Dominica, Skerrit refuted. Dominic, in addition to firm friendship, has no return to China.
