China Condemns US & Canada For Joint Warship Sail Throughs Of Taiwan Strait

The Pentagon revealed on Sunday that it sailed a US warship through the contested Taiwan Strait in conjunction with a Canadian frigate. The pair went through on Thursday and Friday at a moment tensions between China and Taiwan continue to intensify.

The warships were identified in the US military statement as Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyer USS Dewey and the Canadian frigate HMCS Winnipeg. "Dewey's and Winnipeg's transit through the Taiwan Strait demonstrates the commitment of the United States and our allies and partners to a free and open Indo-Pacific," the US military statement said.

This continues the apparent Biden administration pattern of sailing a warship through the strait on "freedom of navigation" missions about once every month. This latest comes within weeks after China's PLA military flew record numbers of aircraft into Taiwan's air defense identification zone.
