That’s why they’re not merely internal matters and why we feel an obligation to raise these issues here today.”
National security adviser Jake Sullivan said that he had; “concerns” with China’s “economic and military coercion to assaults on basic values,” but said that they “do not seek conflict, but we welcome stiff competition and we will always stand up for our principles, for our people, and for our friends.” The Daily wire pointed out.
