US 7th Fleet destroyer transits Taiwan Strait

United States Navy Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyer USS Curtis Wilbur (DDG 54) conducted a routine Taiwan Strait transit May 18 (local time) in accordance with international law, US Navy 7th Fleet said.

“The ship’s transit through the Taiwan Strait demonstrates the U.S. commitment to a free and open Indo-Pacific,” it added.

“The United States military will continue to fly, sail, and operate anywhere international law allows,” the US fleet added.
