China's threats to Taiwan call for appropriate answer - US official

China's treatment of Taiwan, including threats and coercion, justifies an "appropriate" answer from the United States, US Assistant Secretary of State for East Asian and Pacific Affairs Daniel Kritenbrink (pictured) stated on Thursday.

Addressing the press during his visit to Southeast Asia, he underlined that Washington has a "rock-solid" obligation to support Taiwan in upholding "credible self-defense."

Tensions between China and Taiwan have been heightened during the previous weeks, with the latest two visits to the island by the US lawmakers drawing heavy criticism from Beijing.
