China can’t ‘bait’ US with military exercises – Pentagon official

Deputy Defense Secretary for Policy Colin Kahl said Monday (Aug. 8) that China’s military exercises around Taiwan have not changed the Pentagon’s assessment that China would not attempt to militarily retake Taiwan in the next two years. Kahl added: “Obviously the PRC (People’s Republic of China) is trying to force Taiwan, it’s clear they are trying to force the international community and all I will say is we will not take the bait and we will not will work. work.”
