Taiwan flare-up clouds Asia ministerial gathering as US, China trade barbs

China on Thursday cancelled talks with Japan over remarks made in a G7 statement on Taiwan and that same day, Chinese foreign minister Wang Yi walked out moments before a gala dinner attended by his U.S. and Japanese counterparts, without giving a reason.

On Friday, Wang and Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov walked out of a plenary session just as Japan's top diplomat, Yoshimasa Hayashi, spoke.

Wang called a rare news conference late on Friday, where he accused Blinken of spreading misinformation.

He called Pelosi's trip a "contemptible farce" and stressed China's military response to it was "firm, forceful and appropriate", and handled professionally.
