China furious over America’s latest controversial move

China is once again not happy with the United States – and it’s a sign that things are about to get a whole lot worse

China has again condemned the United States, labelling America as the region’s greatest security “risk creator.”

It comes after a U.S. warship again sailed through the sensitive waterway that separates Taiwan from China.

A US Navy ship conducted a “routine Taiwan Strait transit” on Tuesday in accordance with international law.

Chinese officials say their forces monitored the vessel throughout its passage and warned it.

“The U.S. side is intentionally playing the same old tricks and creating trouble and disrupting things in the Taiwan Strait,”

This “fully shows that the United States is the greatest creator of risks for regional security, and we are resolutely opposed to this”, China said.

But Taiwan’s Defence Ministry said the ship had sailed in a northerly direction through the strait and the “situation was as normal”.

The same ship transited the strait a month ago, prompting China to accuse the United States of threatening peace and stability.

The United States, like most countries, has no formal diplomatic ties with Taiwan, however, it is the most important international backer and a major seller of arms.

Military tension between Taiwan and Beijing has spiked over the past year, with Taipei complaining of China repeatedly sending its air force into Taiwan’s air defense zone.
