US Navy destroyer enters Chinese-claimed waters for third time in a week


Recommended Posts

Seoul, South Korea (CNN)A US Navy warship sailed through the Taiwan Strait on Tuesday, the third time in a week the vessel has entered waters claimed by China, heightening tensions between Washington and Beijing.

Washington said the latest voyage by the guided-missile destroyer USS Benfold demonstrated its "commitment to a free and open Indo-Pacific," but Beijing blasted it as a "provocation" that showed the United States was a "destroyer of peace and stability."
The strait is a 110-mile (180-kilometer) wide stretch of water that separates the democratic self-ruled island of Taiwan from mainland China.
