Four US warships, including an aircraft carrier , were stationed in waters east of Taiwan.
As writes Reuters, the aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan passed through the South China Sea and is now in the Philippine Sea, east of Taiwan and the Philippines and south of Japan, a U.S. Navy spokesman told Reuters.
The Japanese-based aircraft carrier Ronald Reagan is working with the guided missile cruiser USS Antietam and the destroyer USS Higgins.
“Though they may react for any unforeseen circumstances, these are normal, routine deployments”, – said the official on condition of anonymity.
The official said that the landing craft USS Tripoli would also be deployed in the area.
