The US warship USS Milius sailed through the Taiwan Strait on Sunday, the US Navy said on Monday, describing it as a “routine” transit, but coming just days after China ended its last war games around the island.
China, which considers Taiwan its own territory, officially ended its three-day exercise around Taiwan last Monday where it practiced precision strikes and blockaded the island.
He organized the drills to express his anger over Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen’s meeting with Speaker of the US House of Representatives Kevin McCarthy.
The US Navy’s 7th Fleet said the Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Milius conducted a “routine transit through the Taiwan Strait” in waters “where the freedoms of navigation and overflight on the high seas apply in accordance with international law”.
The ship’s transit demonstrates the United States’ commitment to a free and open Indo-Pacific, he added.
