(CNA, By Matt Yu and Chung Yu-chen) According to Lu Li-shih, a retired lieutenant commander of Taiwan's Navy, the two American vessels that sailed through the Taiwan Strait on Sunday had their Automatic Identification System (AIS) on, thus allowing the vessels to be monitored on the MarineTraffic app. Lu remarked that turning on the AIS while passing through the Taiwan Strait demonstrates that waters in the region are international waters. <Accessed 2019-04-30>
