U.S. Aegis fights over China through Taiwan Strait
A U.S. Navy Aegis ship based at Yokosuka Base in Kanagawa Prefecture passed the Taiwan Strait on the 16th. The United States appears to be aiming to control China, which is likely to increase pressure following the re-election of Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen, and China has repelled this move.
According to the United States Navy's 7th Fleet, NHK interviews revealed that the Aegis ship Shiloh, based at Yokosuka Base in Kanagawa Prefecture, had passed the Taiwan Strait on 16th local time.
He explains the reason for the transit: "The United States demonstrates a commitment to the free and open Indo-Pacific."
The United States is likely to have control over China, which is concerned about increasing pressure on the Tsai administration following the re-election of Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen this month.
`` Taiwan is the most important issue in U.S.-China relations involving China's sovereignty and territorial integrity, '' a spokeswoman for the U.S. Army passed the Taiwan Strait in a press conference on Friday. "It is a sensitive matter," he said. "We call on the United States to carefully and appropriately deal with the Taiwan issue and not to undermine US-China relations or the stability of the Taiwan Strait."
U.S. Navy vessels have regularly crossed the Taiwan Strait since last January, this time since last November.
