US warship in Taiwan Strait a provocation: China protests
The US claimed that its Kidd guided-missile destroyer, accompanied by the Coast Guard cutter Munro, was transiting "through international waters in accordance with international law." The US presence in Strait of Taiwan followed a naval drill conducted by China southwest of Taiwan last week involving warships and fighter jets.

BEIJING, Aug 29: China has protested against the presence of two US ships in the strait of Taiwan on Friday while the US has asserted that China must accept the international law on the seas. The waterway separates China and Taiwan.

A Chinese statement on Saturday called the passage of US ships provocative and said it showed the US is the biggest threat to peace and stability and creator of security risks in the 160 km wide Taiwan Strait.

On the other hand, a US Navy statement said the Kidd guided- missile destroyer, accompanied by the Coast Guard cutter Munro, transited "through international waters in accordance with international law."

The development follows a naval drill conducted by China southwest of Taiwan last week involving warships and fighter jets. Its armed forces said the drill was a response to "external interference" and "provocations".

Taiwan alleged 11 Chinese aircraft including two nuclear-capable H-6K bombers and six J-16 fighters violated its air defence. China has been, historically, claiming sovereignty over Taiwan for long.

A PLA statement said, the US and Taiwan have "repeatedly colluded in provocation and sent serious wrong signals, severely infringing upon China's sovereignty, and severely undermining peace and stability in the Taiwan Strait".
