The USS John S. McCain sailed through the Taiwan Strait on Thursday, its first such operation since Joe Biden took office. The U.S. 7th fleet said in a statement that the “routine operation” by the Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer was done “in accordance with international law.” “The ship’s transit through the Taiwan Strait demonstrates the U.S. commitment to a free and open Indo-Pacific,” the 7th fleet said. “The United States will continue to fly, sail and operate anywhere where international law allows.”
