Just a few days after President Joe Biden declared that the US would help Taiwan in the event of a Chinese invasion, the US and Canadian warships made a routine passage through the Taiwan Strait. The USS Higgins, an Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer, and HMCS Vancouver, a Royal Canadian Navy Halifax-class frigate, were the two ships that conducted the passage through the Strait, according to a statement from US Navy spokesman Lt. Mark Langford on Tuesday. A US warship has now been through the area twice in the last three weeks or so.
