Six US Navy warships have sailed through the Taiwan Strait this week (so far) – ForexLive

The Chinese military has begun two months of live-fire naval drills off the mainland’s northern coast.

  • PLA will have 11 weeks of naval exercises off the coast of Tangshan 
  • all other vessels are banned from a 15 mile radius of the drill area

The increased activity of US Navy ships in the area is thought to be a response. 

The background to mainland China – Taiwan issues recently is that in 2016 China completely suspended official exchanges with Taiwan, as part of its (mainland China’s) one-China policy – ie. Taiwan is a province not a separate state.  

Regardless, its another indication of the ramping up of US-China tensions in addition to the trade war simmering away.
