Biden 'monitoring' China unrest: White House

President Joe Biden is closely "monitoring" rare unrest in China by protesters demanding political freedoms and an end to Covid lockdowns, the White House said Monday, AFP reported.

"He's monitoring this. We all are. So yes, the president is, is certainly staying mindful," National Security Council spokesman John Kirby told reporters.

Kirby would not describe Biden's reaction to the demonstrators' demands. "The president's not going to speak for protesters around the world. They're speaking for themselves."
