U.S. Navy destroyer passes through Taiwan Strait: defense ministry

Taipei,  A United States Navy destroyer transited through the Taiwan Strait Wednesday, marking the 10th such passage this year, the Ministry of National Defense said in a statement.

The American destroyer sailed south to north through the strait, the ministry said, adding that Taiwan’s Armed Forces were fully aware of its passage and no abnormal movements were detected.

It was the 10th such transit by a U.S. naval vessel this year, with the most recent a destroyer on Aug. 31, the day after an 89-member Czech delegation, led by Senate President Miloš Vystrčil, arrived in Taiwan for a six-day visit.
