The People's Liberation Army has followed and monitored two warships from the United States and Canada which passed through the Taiwan Strait on Saturday.

Shi Yi, spokesman for the PLA's Eastern Theater Command, said in a statement that on Saturday the USS Johnson and Canadian warship HMCS Ottawa sailed through the Taiwan Strait and publicly hyped up. 

"The Eastern Theater Command has organized naval and air forces to follow and monitor the entire process, and handle the situation according to law and regulations," he said.

The troops of the theater command remain on high alert at all times to resolutely safeguard national sovereignty and regional peace and stability, Shi said.
