U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken told an Asian meeting of top diplomats on Friday that China's reaction to U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's visit to Taiwan was "flagrantly provocative", a western official said.
Blinken, speaking at the East Asia Summit in Cambodia, said China had sought to intimidate not only Taiwan, but neighbors too, after it launched the largest-ever military drills in the Taiwan Strait, the official said.
