- In the first reported transit since China’s encirclement exercise around Taiwan, a United States Navy warship sailed through the Taiwan Strait on Sunday.
- Last week, China conducted large-scale air and sea drills in the strait in response to Taiwan’s President Tsai Ing-wen meeting with U.S. House Speaker Kevin McCarthy earlier in April.
- The drills, which simulated an encirclement of Taiwan, were aimed at warning pro-independence politicians on the island and their foreign supporters.
