White House Says The U.S. Warships Crossing Taiwan Strait Consistent With U.S. Policy

It was reported on August 28, that the U.S. National Security Council spokesman John Kirby said the passage of two U.S. warships through the Taiwan Strait was “very consistent” with the U.S. “one-China policy” and the desire to pursue a free and open Indo-Pacific. Kirby also noted, “This was planned long ago.”

The US 7th Fleet said in a statement, The guided-missile cruisers USS Antietam and USS Chancellorsville were on August 28 making the voyage “through waters where high seas freedoms of navigation and overflight apply in accordance with the international law.”

The statement emphasized that “the United States military will sail, fly and operate wherever international law permits us to do so.” Therefore, the passage of U.S. warships through the Taiwan Strait demonstrates the U.S. commitment to the free and open Indo-Pacific region.
