U.S. could send aircraft carrier to Taiwan Strait

Taiwan Strait
A Chinese military expert says he expects more U.S. activity in the Taiwan Strait, after two U.S. Navy ships sailed through waters that lie between China and Taiwan.

Analyst Chen Guangwen said Sunday on Chinese social media the Chinese military needs to make "prior preparations" for any possible provocations.

He said China cannot rule out the possibility the United States could send a nuclear-powered aircraft carrier to the Taiwan Strait within the month.

The United States has previously deployed a nuclear carrier, the USS Nimitz, to the Taiwan Strait in 1996, after China warned the Taiwanese electorate against voting for Lee Teng-hui in the presidential election by launching missiles near Taiwan.

Chen also said the tariff dispute between China and the United States is a prelude to more "strategic competition" between the two rivals.
