Following a recent port visit in Manila, Philippines, HMCS Vancouver sailed through the waters of the Taiwan Strait on Sept. 20, along with the destroyer USS Higgins, on its way into Operation (Op) Neon’s area of operation.
“Today’s routine Taiwan Strait transit demonstrates our commitment to a free, open and inclusive Indo-Pacific,” Defence Minister Anita Anand said in a statement.
Anand said that, as a Pacific nation, Canada was deeply committed to upholding global stability and prosperity in the Indo-Pacific region.
