Blinken hopes Beijing 'will not manufacture a crisis' as China fires missiles around Taiwan

China fired ballistic missiles and deployed fighter jets and warships on Thursday as it held its largest-ever military exercises around Taiwan, a show of force sparked by US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's visit to the island.
