NHK highlighted remarks made to the press on Monday by State Department Press Secretary Price regarding a Chinese military exercise conducted around Taiwan on Monday in retaliation for the latest U.S. congressional delegation’s visit to the self-governing territory on the same day. “Any response to a peaceful visit by members of Congress that entails bellicose rhetoric or military maneuvers or provocative actions is totally unnecessary and an absolute overreaction,” the official was quoted as saying. “Members of Congress have gone to Taiwan for decades…. It is the PRC that is challenging the status quo, that is seeking to erode the status quo.”
