As the USS Theodore Roosevelt and its battle group entered the South China Sea, China’s aircraft carrier Liaoning and its fleet circled Taiwan.

When the two fleets converged, the 25 Chinese aircraft, which included 14 J-16 strike fighters and four H-6K strategic bombers, pushed their way into airspace over Taiwan’s nearby Pratas Island.

Chinese state media outlet The Global Times said: “The exercise conducted by the PLA (People’s Liberation Army) served as a warning to Taiwan secessionists and the US after the two had made a series of provocative moves.

“The PLA is taking pragmatic steps to make sure it can effectively reunify the island of Taiwan if it comes to that.”
