Another U.S. warship transits the Taiwan Strait, the 11th such transit this year (2020/11/22)

A U.S warship has passed through the Taiwan Strait again, according to a Facebook post by the U.S. Seventh Fleet. The USS Barry transited the waters between Taiwan and China in a north-south direction over the weekend. It was the 11th time this year for an American warship to sail along the Taiwan Strait. Local military experts say this is proof that the U.S.'s defense policy will not change as Joe Biden prepares to take office, and that the U.S. will still continue to advocate for freedom of navigation in the Strait.

As China continues to ramp up its military pressure on Taiwan, the U.S. has once again shown its hand. On Nov. 21, a U.S. navy Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyer, the USS Barry, sailed down the Taiwan Strait in a southerly direction and then continued to travel south. Taiwan’s Ministry of National Defense also confirmed this incident.

Defense ministry spokesman
During this period through a joint C4ISR system, the military had a grasp of relevant movements in Taiwan’s surrounding seas and airspace throughout the whole process, and the situation was normal.

Not only was it the fourth time for the USS Barry to transit the Taiwan Strait this year, it was also the 11th time for an American warship to do so. A military expert has interpreted this to mean that U.S. policy of advocating for freedom of navigation in the Taiwan Strait will not change, despite a switch in political leadership in the U.S.

Cheng Chi-wen
Military expert
Many American policies are stable, especially ensuring the right to freedom of navigation. Actually, the Pentagon has always advocated for this from the Cold War era to the present. The passage of the USS Barry once again shows that even though there has been a change of political leadership, when it comes to important policies such as implementation of U.S. defense policy and attending to the protection of U.S. interests, there will be no differences as a result of the changing of the political guard.

The military specialist also thinks U.S. pressure on China in the South China Sea will not relent.

Cheng Chi-wen
Military expert
I think U.S. warships will not only transit the Taiwan Strait. Recently, the U.S. navy has continued to promote these kinds of policies of freedom of passage when it comes to Chinese-controlled islands and reefs in the South China Sea. The U.S. will likely continue to promote this. So sailing past Chinese-controlled islands and reefs in the Paracel Islands and Spratly Islands, I think will likely continue in the future.

It does not look like the U.S. will abandon its resistance to China anytime soon. After its presidential election, the U.S. will likely continue to give Taiwan support as much as ever and endeavor to resist Xi Jinping’s expansionist ambitions.

今年第11度! 美神盾級驅逐艦再通過台海

美國軍艦再度通過台海!第七艦隊在臉書證實,一艘神盾級伯克驅逐艦貝瑞號,昨天由北往南通過台灣海峽,這是貝瑞號今年第4次,也是美艦第11次,軍事專家分析,這代表美方不因為白宮即將換人當家,就放棄自由航行主張,依舊以實質行動力挺我國。

就在中國不斷加大對台軍事施壓之際,美方再度出手,21日一艘美國海軍神盾級伯克驅逐艦─貝瑞號,由北往南通過台灣海峽,並繼續往南行駛,國軍證實這項消息。

[[聲源:國防部發言人 史順文]]
“這段期間,國軍聯合情監偵的相關作為,對台灣周邊的海空域相關動態,全程都有掌握,狀況都正常”

貝瑞號這次通過台海,不但是今年第4次,也是美艦第11度通過,軍事專家分析,美方主張台海自由航行的政策,不會因為政黨輪替出現改變。

[[軍事專家 鄭繼文]]
“美國很多政策是穩定的,特別是貫徹自由航行權力,過去其實是冷戰時代到現在,美國國防部都向來主張,這次貝瑞號再度通過,正顯示了即使美國政黨輪替,但對於這種貫徹美國國防政策,還有兼顧維護美國利益,這種重要政策來講,他是不會有政黨輪替差異”

軍事專家認為,美方在南海議題上,對中國的施壓力道也不會減低。

[[軍事專家 鄭繼文]]
“我認為(美艦)不只是通過台灣海峽,近期美國海軍對於中國南海島礁,自由通過這種政策過去的一些主張,應該還是會持續推動,因此通過南海包括西沙,南沙,這些中國實控島礁的動作,我認為未來還是會持續進行”

美國不甩中國抗議,在總統大選過後,依舊力挺台灣,力抗習近平霸權。
