(Worthy News) – American and Canadian warships sailed through the Taiwan Strait on Tuesday, in the first military freedom of navigation operation since U.S. President Joe Biden said the U.S. would defend Taiwan if it were attacked by China.

USS Higgins, a U.S. Navy guided-missile destroyer, and HMCS Vancouver, a Royal Canadian Navy frigate, conducted “a routine Taiwan Strait transit on September 20 through waters where high seas freedoms of navigation and overflight apply in accordance with international law,” Pentagon press secretary Brig. Gen. Pat Ryder told reporters Tuesday.

China has claimed the Taiwan Strait is not international waters, but “are China’s internal waters” and “territorial sea.” However, under international law, the Taiwan Strait contains a corridor of international waters and airspace beyond the territorial sea of any state where all vessels can navigate freely.
