US Navy Warship Antietam Sails Through Contested Taiwan Strait

The Pentagon announced Wednesday that a US Navy warship had sailed through the Taiwan Strait, a narrow body of water separating the autonomous island of Taiwan from the Chinese mainland.

The Ticonderoga-class guided missile cruiser USS Antietam transited the 112-mile-wide waterway on Wednesday as part of a display of defiance by Washington, which rejects Beijing's claims of sovereignty over Taiwan and the strait.

"The ships' transit through the Taiwan Strait demonstrates the US commitment to a free and open Indo-Pacific," US Navy spokesperson Commander Clay Doss said in a statement.
