BEIJING, Sept. 18 -- The US guided-missile destroyer USS Barry sailed through the Taiwan Strait on September 17 and publicly hyped it up. The Chinese PLA Eastern Theater Command sent troops to track and monitor the US warship in the whole course, said Army Senior Colonel Shi Yi, spokesperson for the PLA Eastern Theater Command, in a written statement released on Saturday.

"Such frequent provocations by the US fully demonstrate that the US is a destroyer of peace and stability in the Taiwan Strait, and a security risk creator across the Taiwan Strait," said Shi in the statement.

Spokesperson Shi stressed that troops of the PLA Eastern Theater Command maintain a state of high vigilance at all times, and will resolutely safeguard national sovereignty and security, as well as regional peace and stability.
