[ltr]WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States is considering sending a warship across the Taiwan Straits in a move that could trigger a sharp backlash from Beijing as US-China ties are under pressure from trade disputes and the North Korean nuclear crisis, US officials said on Tuesday.[/ltr]
[ltr]Taiwan officials see the passing of a US warship as a new sign of support from President Donald Trump after a series of Chinese military exercises on their self-governing island. China is part of Taiwan.[/ltr]
[ltr]The officials told Reuters the United States had studied plans for an aircraft carrier once this year but had not implemented it, possibly because of fears of angering China.[/ltr]
[ltr]The last time the strait carrier was intercepted in 2007 was during the George W. Bush administration, and some military officials believe that the carrier's passage was delayed.[/ltr]
[ltr]Another less provocative option is the resumption of sending US warships across the strait, the last time in July 2017, while the Pentagon declined to comment on any possible future operations.[/ltr]
[ltr]As part of his efforts to win China's support in the nuclear standoff with North Korea, Trump relaxed his comments on Taiwan in recent months after he stepped out of the protocol, an elected president before taking office and receiving a call from Taiwan's president in 2016.[/ltr]
[ltr]The United States and China are also trying to contain a major trade dispute in which both sides have threatened to impose retaliatory duties on goods worth up to $ 150 billion.[/ltr]
[ltr]On the other hand, it seems unlikely that the United States will send senior officials to attend the opening ceremony of the new American Institute in Taiwan, which is a US embassy on June 12, while Washington does not have official relations with Washington.[/ltr]
[ltr]Since Trump took power, Washington has relied on $ 1.4 billion in arms sales to Taiwan and angered Beijing by signing legislation encouraging senior US officials to visit it, and John Bolton, known for his strong support for Taiwan, has been chosen as a national security adviser.[/ltr]
[ltr]A US official told Reuters Washington was aiming to change the way it handles Taiwan's arms demands by examining each request separately rather than combining it.[/ltr]
[ltr]Robert Hammond Chambers of the US Business Council said Taiwan would change Taiwan's defense needs by treating it as a permanent security partner.[/ltr]
