    WASHINGTON, July 28 (Reuters) - U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Tuesday praised Australia for standing up to pressure from China and said Washington and Canberra would continue to work together to reassert the rule of law in the South China Sea.

    At a joint news conference with Pompeo in Washington, Australia's Foreign Minister Marise Payne stressed that Canberra's relationship with China was important and it had no intention of injuring it, but would not do things contrary to Canberra's interests.
