U.S. will defend against China -Blinken interview

U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken said in an interview that aired on Sunday that China had recently acted "more aggressively abroad" and was behaving "increasingly in adversarial ways." Bryan Wood reports.

U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken acknowledged rising tension with China on Sunday.

He was asked on 60 Minutes whether the two countries were heading toward military conflict.

"It's profoundly against the interests of both China and the United States to, to get to that point, or even to head in that direction... What we've witnessed over the last-- several years is China acting more repressively at home and more aggressively abroad.

That is a fact.” The interview aired the same day Blinken arrived in London for a G7 foreign ministers meeting, where China tops the agenda.

Blinked said the U.S. was not trying to control China, but to protect a world order.

“Our purpose is not to contain China, to hold it back, to keep it down.

It is to uphold this rules-based order that China is posing a challenge to.

Anyone who poses a challenge to that order, we're going to stand up and-- and defend it.” U.S. President Joe Biden has made competition with China his administration’s top foreign policy priority.

In his first speech to Congress last week, Biden pledged to maintain a military presence in the Indo-Pacific and last month, Blinken warned it’d be a “serious mistake” for China to continue its aggression toward Taiwan.

Beijing claims the self-governed island as its own.

Taipei has complained in recent months about repeated Chinese air force missions nearby.

The Chinese Embassy in Washington did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Blinken's interview.

Lin Shih-Chia is an Olympic bronze-medal winning archer from Chinese Taipei and always had a passion for the sport. She was born into a traditional family in the city of Hsinchu and her father remembers watching her unusual training regime when she was very young.“Coach Ni recruited her for practice in primary school," Lin Wen-Chin says. "I objected to the idea at first because they started from scratch. There was nothing in the archery field. We kept seeing her stretch the rubber band, but we had no idea what she was doing at that time”, He says he could not understand archery as a sport at first, until his daughter gradually accomplished more and more things and started winning events overseas. Wen-Chin and her father talk to Yahoo Taiwan about her family's silent - but steely - support and how she reached Olympic glory.
