Policy: Blinken was interviewed by CNN Friday, on the last day of his visit to China. The foreign minister says China has tried to interfere in the American election despite the fact that the Chinese president has said they should stay away.

– We have seen, generally speaking, evidence of attempts to influence and possibly prevent, Blinken responds to questions about alleged election influence.

– We want to ensure that it is finished as soon as possible, he says further.

Blinken says this is “completely unacceptable”. Joe Biden has previously told President Xi Jinping that this must not happen, and the foreign minister has repeated this to Xi this week.

– I wanted to make sure he heard that message again, says Blinken.
