President Biden, Chinese Premier Li clash over South China Sea at East Asia Summit 

Nikkei wrote that President Biden expressed concern during a virtual gathering at the East Asia Summit on Thursday over “threats to the international rules-based order” with China’s activities in the South China Sea in mind. Chinese Premier Li Keqiang rebutted President Biden’s statement by saying that “the situation in the South China Sea has maintained overall stability.” The paper added that the two leaders also clashed over Taiwan, as President Biden reiterated that the United States has a “rock-solid” commitment to Taiwan and is “deeply concerned by China’s coercive actions that threaten regional peace and stability.” All other papers ran similar reports.
