Blinken: US stands by Taiwan

The US Secretary of State warned Chinese leaders on Wednesday about tensions across the Taiwan Strait. Antony Blinken urged them to stop what he called their "provocative military activity" near Taiwan.

Blinken spoke at meetings of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development in Paris. He said the US would continue to stand with its allies to advance shared prosperity, security, and values.

The secretary said the US would continue to deepen ties with Taiwan. He said that commitment was "rock solid."

Chinese military aircraft have entered the Taiwanese zone repeatedly since the beginning of the month.
