US warship sailed through Taiwan Strait amidst tension between Taiwan and China.The warship was closely watched by Taiwan's military. This comes as Taiwan had been scrambling jets to stop Chinese fighter jets from crossing into their boundaries.

China has however hinted that it views Taiwan as part of it and will do anything possible to ensure it recovers it back into its territory. The US Navy on its part said it would cross on any waters as long as the international law allows it to.


Taiwan has accused China of increasing military activity in the region instead of focusing on fighting the pandemic corona virus which blew from its city Wuhan. Beijing on its part hasn’t ruled out use of force to regain control of Taiwan viewing it as a part of it.

Since US and Taiwan signed a military sales agreement, China has increased it’s military presence in the region raising concerns of its intended purpose.
