According to U.S. 7th Fleet spokesman Cmdr. Clayton Doss
The U.S. will continue to fly, sail and operate anywhere international law allows.
He continued, that the vessels voyage through the Taiwan Strait represents the US commitment to a free and open Indo-Pacific.
The USCG cutter is commonly deployed off the coast of Central and South America, being responsible for the coast guard's anti-narcotics missions.
That's why, its presence on the other side of the Pacific is a higher-profile assignment.
Rand Corp. senior policy analyst Lyle Morris quoted to the Japan Times, that the vessels place on that side of the Pacific highlights the willingness to send a cutter for sensitive national security missions.
Mainly, this tactic, reflects China's use of the China Coast Guard and additional government-owned vessels for its national security objectives in the South China Sea and the Senkaku Islands.
In the meantime, Beijing doesn't agree with Taiwan's autonomy. It plans to unify the island with the mainland under one single government.
The US Navy voyages through the Strait represent the American support for Taiwan and often prompt objections from Beijing.
The Chinese Foreign Ministry cautioned the U.S. not to interfere.
China has paid close attention to . . . the passage of the US military vessels through the Taiwan Strait. We have made representations to the US side. We urge the US to strictly abide by the one-China principle and the three China-US joint communiques, prudently and properly handle Taiwan-related issues, and avoid damaging China-US relations and cross-straits peace and stability
