(CNA, By Matt Yu and Joseph Yeh) Taiwan's Minister of National Defense Yen De-fa announced that the U.S. has deployed two aircraft carriers to the West Pacific in its effort to maintain regional peace. Yen further remarked that the decision by the U.S. to send the two warships has nothing to do with the upcoming November local elections. Meanwhile, Vice Adm. Phil Sawyer stated that the presence of the aircraft carriers demonstrate the freedom and rights of U.S. Navy to operate where international law permits. <Accessed 2018-11-20>
