Destroyer USS John S. McCain (DDG 56), fighter of the CCP army
On Wednesday (April 7), the US destroyer USS John S. McCain passed through the Taiwan Strait. This is believed to be a deterrent signaling action to the Chinese Navy, according to Sound Of Hope.
US State Department spokesman Ned Price said on April 7 that the United States was extremely concerned about the Chinese Navy threat in the region, and stressed that the US commitment to Taiwan. is “as solid as a stone table”. Mr. Price also said that the US will uphold its promise to join Taiwan against threats to Taiwan’s security, people or economy and society.
The US Navy has also issued a statement saying that the US military will continue to carry out flight, travel and other missions in areas permitted by international law.
According to public information from the US Department of Defense, this is the fourth time a US warship has passed through the Taiwan Strait since US President Joe Biden took office on January 20.
The move of American ships comes in the context of Beijing recently repeatedly dispatching fighter jets to invade southwestern Taiwan.
