The ministry said the Maritime Self-Defense Force confirmed that during the period from Monday to Tuesday the Liaoning, accompanied by five other vessels, sailed northward between Okinawa’s main island and Miyakojima Island, and then entered the East China Sea, reported NHK World.

Early in April, the fleet was seen sailing south in the same area and entering the Pacific.

This is the second time that the Chinese aircraft carrier has passed between the two Japanese islands on a round trip.

The Defense Ministry also said that, after entering the East China Sea, an early warning helicopter was viewed taking off from the Liaoning and coming around 50 to 100 kilometers to the northeast of Taisho Island, part of Japan’s Senkaku Islands. This prompted the Air Self-Defense Force’s aircraft to scramble.
