USS Barry transits Taiwan Strait

Commander, U.S. 7th Fleet

TAIWAN STRAIT, At Sea — The Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Barry (DDG 52) conducted a routine Taiwan Strait transit Nov. 21 (local time) 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 U.S. Navy will continue to fly, sail and operate anywhere international law allows.
