China's CNS Liaoning aircraft carrier has recently carried out multiple exercises in the Western Pacific, as its soldiers "effectively responded to" foreign warships which have conducted close-in reconnaissance.

The formation of the CNS Liaoning carried out various exercises in areas including air defense, anti-submarine training and confrontation drills close to actual combat, according to a Friday report by China Media Group.

The formation remained at a state of alert and kept its weapons and equipment ready for combat, the report said.

"We designed typical combat environments and focused on far-sea combat deployment and drills," Zhou Jianqiang, a department leader of CNS Liaoning, was quoted as saying.

Command system, combat tactics and capabilities were strengthened or improved in actual combat environments, he said, adding the exercises tempered the far-sea combat capability of the aircraft carrier formation.

During the exercises, the soldiers of the formation "cautiously handled and effectively responded to" foreign warships and warplanes that "conducted close-in reconnaissance, followed and monitored" the Chinese aircraft carrier fleet, the report stated.
