The Royal Navy announced that the HMS Richmond, a frigate deployed as part of a U.K. aircraft carrier strike group, was sailing through the Taiwan Strait on Monday. China responded by saying that the act “harbored evil intentions,” reflecting the tensions in this sensitive zone. U.S. warships conduct regular “freedom of navigation” exercises in the Strait and view those areas as international waters that should be open to all vessels.
