China Reacts To Blinken Visit Delay

China has said it respects the Biden administration’s decision to postpone a visit by Secretary of State Anthony Blinken to Beijing after a Chinese high-altitude balloon was spotted in US airspace.

The role of Chinese and American diplomats is to “properly manage bilateral relations, particularly to manage some unexpected situations in a cool-headed and prudent manner,” China’s Foreign Ministry said in a statement on Saturday.
“Neither side has ever announced that there would be a visit,” the ministry pointed out.

As for Washington postponing Blinken’s trip, “it is a matter for the US to make its latest announcement, and we respect that,” the statement said.
