U.S. Navy Destroyer maccampbell crossing the Taiwan Strait: U.S. Pacific Fleet

Different from the previous crossing, during this crossing, the US Navy took off an ep-3e reconnaissance aircraft numbered 157318 from Kadena base in Okinawa to provide intelligence support over the southern Taiwan Strait.

According to the Taiwan media on March 26, the Defense Department of Taiwan said that the U.S. ships passing through the Taiwan Strait are carrying out general navigation tasks, and the Taiwan army is in full control. Please rest assured.

Since the beginning of this year, the US Navy has accelerated the frequency of warships crossing the Taiwan Strait, which is the third time that the US military has warships crossing the Taiwan Strait this year. Earlier, on February 15, Taiwans Defense Department said tonight that a US battleship was sailing through the Taiwan Strait from north to south this morning. The US Navy later admitted that a Ticonderoga cruiser crossed the Taiwan Strait on February 15.

The Ministry of foreign affairs and the Ministry of national defense of the peoples Republic of China have responded to the incident of US warships crossing the Taiwan Strait many times before. Geng Shuang, a spokesman for Chinas foreign ministry, said at a regular press conference held in Beijing on January 17 that China closely follows and fully grasps the situation of US warships sailing across the Taiwan Strait.

Geng Shuang stressed that the Taiwan issue concerns Chinas sovereignty and territorial integrity and is the most important and sensitive issue in China US relations. We urge the US side to abide by the one China principle and the provisions of the three Sino US joint communiques, and handle Taiwan related issues carefully and properly, so as not to damage Sino US relations and peace and stability in the Taiwan Strait.
