Secretary of State Antony Blinken told Chinese officials Thursday the Biden administration stands with its allies in rejecting China’s increasing authoritarianism at home and abroad.

The contentious public comments likely indicate even rockier private discussions during the two-day meeting in Anchorage, Alaska.
