The Fujian maritime safety administration has initiated a three-day joint-patrol and inspection operation in the central and northern Taiwan Strait. According to a post on its WeChat account.

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy welcomed Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen in California on Wednesday. He became the most senior American official to visit a Taiwanese leader on American soil in decades. This occurs when tensions between China and Taiwan increase.

To “ensure the safety of vessel navigation and the safe and orderly operation of key water-based projects.” The maritime safety authority in the southeastern Chinese province announced Wednesday that “on-site inspections” of direct cargo ships. Construction vessels on both sides of the Taiwan Strait would be conducted.

The Maritime and Ports Bureau of Taiwan’s Ministry of Transportation issued a statement protesting China’s conduct late on Wednesday.

It said that it has told the relevant shipping businesses that they should refuse any such requests from China and instead seek assistance from Taiwan’s coast guard.

“Normal communication between the two sides would be hindered if the mainland side insists on unilateral action. We shall be compelled to respond in like.” It added something without specifying what it was.

The operation comprises the Taiwan Strait vessel common route, intensively navigable commercial and fishing vessel locations, and places with regular illegal sand mining operations, including the Pingtan Taiwan direct container route, the “little three links” passenger route, and the Taiwan Strait.

The “small three links,” or passenger boat routes, connect the Taiwanese islands Kinmen and Matsu, which are situated just across from China and Chinese settlements.

The fleet will continue to undertake cruise inspections in the center and northern sections of the Taiwan Strait over the course of the next two days as part of a joint special operation with the East China Sea Rescue Bureau and the East China Sea Navigation Support Center.
