White House Pushes For Proof of the Whereabouts of Peng Shuai

Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “White House Pushes For Proof of the Whereabouts of Peng Shuai” – below is their description.

Speaking at the briefing, press secretary Jen Psaki said the White House is “deeply concerned by reports that Peng Shuai appears to be missing…We join in the calls for PRC authorities to provide independent and verifiable proof of her whereabouts and that she is safe.”

“We’ll continue to stand up for the freedom of speech and we know the PRC has zero tolerance for criticism and a record of silencing those that speak out, and we continue to condemn those practices,” Psaki added.

The 35-year-old former top-ranked player in women’s doubles won titles at Wimbledon in 2013 and the French Open in 2014. She also participated in three Olympics, making her disappearance all the more prominent with Beijing set to host the Winter Games starting Feb. 4.
