Chinese defense chief warns U.S. not to get involved in Taiwan affairs 

NHK reported on a teleconference between Secretary of Defense Austin and his Chinese counterpart Wei on Wednesday, during which the Chinese official warned the United States against getting involved in Taiwan affairs by saying: “If the Taiwan issue is not handled properly, it will have a catastrophic impact on Sino-U.S. relations,” according to a PRC readout. The network explained that the warning came following recent visits to the island territory by U.S. government and congressional delegations. Pointing out that the two defense chiefs exchanged views on a range of regional and global security issues, including the Russian aggression against Ukraine, the network said Wei pressed Washington to not capitalize on the Ukraine situation to slander or intimidate China.
