U.S. Navy Sailed Two Warships Near Taiwan

Objectivity 4.5 | Credibility 4.6 | Relevance 4.6

After Nancy Pelosi’s visit to the nation, the USS Antietam and USS Chancellorsville performed a “routine transit” through the Taiwan Strait. Hu Xijin, the former editor of China’s Global Times tabloid wrote in a tweet, “It’s no longer a deterrent but only reminds us the U.S. is a very unfriendly force.  The resolution of Taiwan question should speed up to eliminate a leverage of external forces in undermining China’s rise.” Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) said, “These developments demonstrate how authoritarian countries are disrupting and threatening the world order.”
