BEIJING (Reuters) - China's Defence Ministry said on Thursday that Canadian navy ships sailed through the Strait of Taiwan, which separates self-ruled Taiwan from China.

The ships sailed through the strait on June 18 in a "freedom of navigation" operation, according to Canada's Globe and Mail, the first such journey since tensions escalated between Canada and China after Canadian authorities arrested a Huawei executive.
