Jake Sullivan noted that the administration will put additional pressure on China when there is an "international consensus."

What we’re going to do is continue to rally support in the international community,” Biden’s national security adviser said. “And if it turns out that China refuses to live up to its international obligations, we will have to consider our responses at that point, and we will do so in concert with allies and partners.”
