(Worthy News) – The Chinese military on Monday said the United States had “publicly hyped up” an American warship’s presence in the Taiwan Strait after the U.S. Navy sent a destroyer through the sensitive waters for only the second time this year.

Col. Shi Yi, spokesperson for the People Liberation Army’s Eastern Theater Command, said China’s troops were “on high alert at all times to resolutely defend national sovereignty and security, and regional peace and stability.” Hours earlier, the Navy’s Seventh Fleet said the USS Milius had “conducted a routine Taiwan Strait transit” on April 16.

The U.S. officially doesn’t oppose China’s decades-long aim of achieving a political union with Taiwan, which today is a democratically governed island whose public has shown little interest in being ruled from Beijing. Washington’s own long-standing policy, however, insists cross-strait difference be resolved peacefully, without coercion or the use of force. [ Source: NewsWeek (Read More…) ]
