A group of Chinese warships led by the country's sole aircraft carrier entered the top half of the South China Sea on Monday after passing south of Taiwan, the island's defence ministry said of what China has termed a routine exercise.
The move comes amid renewed tension over self-ruled Taiwan, which Beijing claims as its own, following US President-elect Donald Trump's telephone call with the island's president that upset Beijing.
The ministry said the aircraft carrier the Liaoning, accompanied by five vessels, had early Monday afternoon passed southeast of the Pratas Islands, which are controlled by Taiwan, heading southwest.
The carrier group earlier in the day passed 90 nautical miles south of Taiwan's southernmost point via the Bashi Channel, between Taiwan and the Philippines.

Buddhism says to limit the wants. The expansionist attitude of China made it clear they learnt nothing from Buddhism rather they are more involved in state sponsored terrorism and boarder fighting.
At the right time, Trump is elected for US President. He knows how to treat China for its aggressive behaviors.
