US Sends Warships Through Taiwan Strait

The US has deployed two of its warships to the Taiwan Strait in a first such mission since the controversial visit of US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to Taipei, the Navy said.

USS Chancellorsville and USS Antietam, which are both Ticonderoga-class guided-missile cruisers, are sailing through international waters in the area, according to a statement from the US 7th fleet.

According to the US 7th fleet, the warship transit is “routine” and “demonstrates the United States’ commitment to a free and open Indo-Pacific.”
