  • Description

    The American guided-missile cruiser, USS Oklahoma, which has been operating in waters off Vietnam with the Seventh Fleet, paid a goodwill visit to Taiwan in December.

    The Oklahoma tied up in Taiwan's port of Keelung, where Vice-Admiral James Halloway inspected a guard of honour.

    The ship's visit followed one by Major-General John Gonge, Commander of the U.S. 22nd Air Force.

    The Taiwan regime says such visits are evidence that the United States intends to maintain its friendship and diplomatic relations with Taipei despite the rapprochement with The People's republic of China.

    SYNOPSIS: Military ceremony at Keelung port in Taiwan, where Vice-Admiral James Holloway of the United States Navy paid a goodwill visit in December.

    He was aboard the guided-missile cruiser U.S.S. Oklahoma.

    The ship has been serving in the waters off Vietnam with the United States Seventh Fleet. The Oklahoma frequently makes port calls-such as this one--as part of her goodwill operations. And the chance to inspect her guns, missile and other armaments, never fails to draw visitors. This visit closely followed one by a top ranking U.S. Air Force officer and the assignment of two squadrons of Phantom jets to the Taiwan Defence Command--events which the Taiwan regime says are signs of American friendship.
