Biden administration sends fourth warship through Taiwan Strait (2021/04/08)

An American destroyer sailed through the Taiwan Strait on Wednesday, the fourth such transit by the U.S. under the Biden administration. It was announced by the U.S. 7th Fleet as a "routine" transit "through international waters in accordance with international law." Beijing slammed the move as destabilizing the Taiwan Strait, while the U.S. State Department reiterated its support for Taiwan in a press briefing.

Officers in masks monitor the open seas. These are images released by the U.S. 7th Fleet, of the USS John S. McCain transiting the Taiwan Strait.

Striking images of the Arleigh Burke-class destroyer, as well as its crew and command room, were released on the 7th Fleet's official website. The ship's transit through the Taiwan Strait was the fourth under the Biden administration. It came after China announced its Liaoning carrier group would be exercising near Taiwan.

John Kirby
Pentagon spokesman
We don't conduct Freedom of Navigation operations around the world to send - to respond to some specific event or the specific action of another country.

The Pentagon denied that its transit was a response to the Liaoning's activities. But even so, the move angered the PLA, which said it tracked and monitored the destroyer throughout its passage. It said the U.S. transit sent the wrong signal to Taiwan independence forces, endangering regional peace and stability. China is firmly opposed, it said. At a Wednesday press briefing, the U.S. state department again expressed its support for Taiwan.

Ned Price
US state department spokesman
Our commitment to Taiwan is rock-solid. … The United States maintains the capacity to resist any resort to force or other forms of coercion that would jeopardize the security or the social or economic system of the people on Taiwan.

Tsai Shih-ying
DPP lawmaker
The U.S. is making China understand, so that China doesn't misjudge the situation. That is to say, whether the U.S. government is Republican or Democrat, its support for Taiwan is guaranteed to be the same. So we see moves like the USS John S. McCain transiting the Taiwan Strait. Currently the U.S. also has the Theodore Roosevelt strike group in waters surrounding the South China Sea. I think that for the U.S., a very important purpose of these missions is to tell China, "Don't be deluded into thinking that the Taiwan Strait and the South China Sea are your territorial waters. Don't be deluded into thinking that Taiwan is your territory."

The DPP lawmaker said that by sending its destroyer through the strait, the U.S. was once again signaling its support for Taiwan, and to warn Beijing.

馬侃號驅逐艦通過台海 美:保有能力抗武力行動

中國航母遼寧艦近日在台灣附近海域演訓,還派出軍機頻繁擾台美國國務院今天表示,已經注意到中共持續恫嚇的行為,強調美國會保有能力,抵抗任何可能危及台灣人民安全。而就在昨天,美國第七艦隊主動公布馬侃號驅逐艦通過台灣海峽的影片,這已經是拜登上台以來,美國軍艦第四度通過台海。

馬侃號航行的英姿,還有官兵遠眺海上動靜、甚至指揮室裡的畫面,通通放上官網。這是美國總統拜登上任後,美國軍艦第4度通過台灣海峽,而且就在中國周一宣布航母遼寧艦在台灣海域進行演訓後,時機點實在敏感。

[[美國防部發言人 柯比]]
"美方不會透過,在全球執行自由航行的方式,發送或回應某些特定事件,或另一個國家的特定行動。"

儘管美軍不是回應遼寧艦在台灣海域的演訓,但馬侃號通過台海,可讓中國解放軍不滿,聲稱全程進行跟蹤監視,還說「美艦此舉向台獨傳遞錯誤信號,蓄意干擾破壞地區局勢,危害台海和平穩定,表達堅決反對。」美國國務院6日於例行記者會上,再度表達力挺台灣。

[[美國國務院發言人 普萊斯]]
"我們對台灣的承諾堅若磐石,在支持如「台灣關係法」所反映的,美國長年政策下,美國會保有能力抵抗,任何可能危及台灣人民安全,社會或經濟制度的武力或其他形式的脅迫。

[[立委(民) 蔡適應]]
"(美方)他是要讓中國了解,不要去誤判這樣的局勢。就是說美國政府不論是共和黨,還是民主黨,對於台灣的支持,一貫的保證都是一致的,所以會看得到,我們看到馬侃號通過台灣海峽。那目前在南海周遭海域,也有個羅斯福號航母戰鬥群等等。我覺得很重要的原因,就是美國告訴中國,不要妄想把台灣海峽跟南海

綠委解讀,美方透過馬侃號通過台灣海峽,表達友台並警告中國的立場。
