US-China military channels not completely shut - Kirby

United States National Security Council Coordinator for Strategic Communications John Kirby told reporters on Friday that not all military channels have been shut between the United States and China.

The channels China took down "don't completely eliminate opportunities for senior members of our military to talk," Kirby asserted, adding that at times of such high tensions, it is important to have communication open.

Kirby once again underlined that Washington is not "seeking a crisis" and that there was no reason for Beijing to react as it did.
