(Worthy News) – Secretary of State Antony Blinken warned China not to “push at changing the status quo” as Beijing threatens to retaliate over Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen’s meeting with House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA).

“Beijing should not use the transits as an excuse to take any actions to ratchet up tensions,” Blinken told reporters Wednesday. “And our objective remains the same: to have peace, to have stability across the Taiwan Strait, and to ensure that any differences that exist between the mainland and Taiwan are resolved peacefully.”

Tsai will meet McCarthy and other U.S. lawmakers at the Ronald Reagan Library in California on a “transit” stop during her return to Taiwan from Central America. Their encounter is structured as a stopover meeting in an apparent effort to avoid a crisis of the scale that erupted following then-Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) visit to Taipei in August, but Chinese military forces launched a “joint cruise and patrol special operation,” and the regime’s newest aircraft carrier “entered Taiwan’s southeastern waters,” according to Taipei.
