U.S. Destroyer Transits Taiwan Strait for Second Time in August


Recommended Posts

A guided-missile destroyer moved through the Taiwan Strait on Sunday as the U.S. increases pressure on China over its maritime claims in the region, according to the Navy.

A photo posted on a Navy webpage shows destroyer USS Halsey (DDG-97) passing through the strait.

Halsey’s transit comes after USS Mustin (DDG-89) moved through the strait earlier this month. At the time, the Navy said Mustin‘s was the service’s tenth passage through the strait in 2020. Just before the transit, Mustin had been partaking in drills in the East China Sea with Japanese Akizuki-class guided-missile destroyer JS Suzutsuki (DD-117). https://news.usni.org/2020/08/31/u-s-destroyer-transits-taiwan-strait-for-second-time-in-august
