China's Provocative Actions Towards Taiwan Are Dangerous, Blinken Says
Updated on

U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken criticized China’s recent military maneuvers around Taiwan, urging leaders in Beijing to stop such behavior for fear of a miscalculation.

“The actions we’ve seen by China are provocative and potentially destabilizing,” Blinken said Wednesday in an interview in Paris with Bloomberg Television. “What I hope is that these actions will cease because there’s always the possibility of miscalculation, of miscommunication, and that’s dangerous.”
