Speaking in front of the press at the State Department briefing, Price insisted that Beijing’s games were still about a year away.

“We’re talking about 2022, and we’re still in April of 2021, so these games are some time away,” Price said. “I don’t want to put a time limit on this, but these discussions are going on.”
