UNITED STATES tensions with China have escalated after the US sent warships through the Taiwan Strait in a major snub to Beijing who had warned against such “provocations”.

China will see the move as a Donald Trump’s nation giving backing to Taiwan over the ongioing dispute.

Beijing sees Taiwan as a rogue province and has continued to flex authority over the self-ruling state.

However, Commander Nate Christensen, deputy spokesman for US Pacific Fleet, said in a statement: “The ships’ transit through the Taiwan Strait demonstrates the US commitment to a free and open Indo-Pacific.

“The US Navy will continue to fly, sail and operate anywhere international law allows.”

US Navy warships carried out a similar move in July which sparked anger in Beijing.

The latest mission saw two warships pass through the Taiwan Strait earlier today.

US officials had warned on Saturday they were considering a move to send a message to ensure free passage through the waterway.

The Pentagon had said China’s navy had shown “unsafe and unprofessional” conduct in the region after a Chinese destroyer moved close to an American warship earlier this week.
