President Joe Biden touched down in South Korea Friday, marking his first trip to Asia as president. On his to-do list is strengthening alliances and countering China. Canada bans gear from Huawei and ZTE. Officials say the two Chinese telecom giants pose a threat to Canada's national security. At the same time, Beijing lifts a ban on certain Canadian food imports. Many suspect it involved high food prices and goods shortages across China. Taiwan won’t be allowed to attend an important World Health Organization (WHO) meeting, as communist China objects to the island’s involvement. The Biden administration is pushing a new proposal. If passed, it would give the WHO’s director-general unprecedented powers. But one major concern is coming to light.
