Biden: U.S. ‘Deeply Concerned’ about China Air Defense Move

The Washington Post reports that “Vice President Biden on Tuesday said the United States is ‘deeply concerned’ by China’s move last week to establish an air defense zone over a disputed chain of islands in the East China Sea, but he stopped short of demanding that Beijing withdraw its declaration.”

“Biden blamed China’s action for raising regional tensions with a pair of U.S. allies, Japan and South Korea, which the vice president warned would ‘increase the risk of accidents and miscalculation.’”
