“During the lengthy conversation our national security adviser had with his counterpart, he reiterated our one-China policy based on the Taiwan Relations Act, three communicators and six assurances, and stressed concerns about Beijing’s coercive and provocative actions across the Taiwan Strait, which are of course our position in public, but is also something that he took the time to repeat during this conversation, “said Psaki.

“There are a number of sanctions that we obviously have in place. And of course we are looking at whether there is a violation of them. And we are also looking at whether there is support for the military invasion of another country. I do not have any assessment of it to give you today, “she said in response to the question.

On what measures were on the table if China proved to be helping Russia either militarily or economically in the war, Psaki said the United States would have these talks directly with China and the Chinese leadership and not through the media at this point in time.

“I would like to note that when our national security adviser had his meeting yesterday, he was very direct about the consequences. He made it clear that we will follow closely, and made it clear that it is not just us. as China takes is will be monitored by the world, “said Psaki.
