Beijing said on Thursday it has reasons to stay "highly alert" to Tokyo's military moves and the real intentions behind them, one day after a large Japanese escort vessel was commissioned.

Japan's 248-meter helicopter carrier Kaga entered service on Wednesday, giving the nation's military greater ability to deploy beyond its shores, Reuters reported.

The Kaga shares the same name as a Japanese aircraft carrier that was sunk by the United States in World War II.
