Ticonderoga-class guided-missile cruiser USS Shiloh (CG-67) transited the Taiwan Strait on Thursday, less than a week after voters on the island reelected a leader opposed to closer ties between Taipei and Beijing.
Taiwan's Ministry of National Defense announced the transit Friday, in a statement saying, “U.S. ships carried out general navigation missions through the Taiwan Strait, and the National Army used joint intelligence surveillance and investigation to master the relevant dynamics of the sea, airspace, and aircraft around us. There was no abnormality during this period. Please rest assured.”
