U.S DESTROYER CROSSES TAIWAN STRAIT, RISKING CHINESE ANGER

A US battleship crossed the Taiwan Strait on Wednesday, the US Navy said, risking angering China, which claims sovereignty over the maritime thoroughfare.

Seventh Fleet spokeswoman Reann Mommsen said the guided-missiled destroyer USS Barry conducted a ‘routine Taiwan Strait transit on October 14 in accordance with international law.

“The ship’s transit through the Taiwan Strait demonstrates the US commitment to a free and open Indo-Pacific,” she added.

The US Navy regularly conducts so-called “freedom of navigation” operations in the Taiwan Strait, which separates China from the island. The operations always provoke strong responses from Beijing.

China considers Taiwan part of its territory. The island is led by a rival government that took refuge there after communists took power in China in 1949, at the end of the Chinese Civil War.
