EU concerned over escalating tensions in Taiwan

STORY: "We are here and we call for restraint, and we call for everybody to avoid an escalation of this situation in order to avoid that an accident that could provoke a much, much more dangerous situation," EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell told media during an interview in Cambodia's capital Phnom Penh.

United States House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi's unannounced stop in Taiwan, the self-ruled island that Beijing considers its own, has prompted an infuriated Beijing to hold live-fire drills in waters around Taiwan, with five missiles landing in Japan's exclusive economic zone (EEZ).

Borrell was in Phnom Penh to attend bilateral meetings with the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) to discuss enhancing economic cooperation.
