China's aircraft carrier has sailed out of the Taiwan Strait after it completed military drills in the disputed South China Sea.
Taiwan said the carrier group did not pose a threat. Taiwan noted that the Chinese ships did not enter its territorial waters, but did sail into its air defense identification zone. The move prompted the Taiwanese military to scramble fighter jets and naval vessels to monitor the situation. The Taiwan Strait passage and naval drills come at a time of heightened tension between the two sides. Beijing is suspicious that Taiwan's President Tsai Ing-wen wants formal independence from China. Beijing considers Taiwan a breakaway province that must be reunited.
