Officials from Joint Region Marianas have confirmed that a ship of The Chinese People’s Liberation Army’s naval fleet was spotted by Japanese forces less than 400 miles away from Guam.

As national news agencies report, it was spotted within 400 miles of the Western Pacific nation last week.

The main aircraft carrier among the fleet, the Shandong, was reportedly conducting intensive drills beyond the first island chain after completing an encirclement of Taiwan last week.

During the latter half of the exercise it is believed the Shandong headed further east and reached waters about 372 miles to the west of Guam.

JRM told the Pacific News Center that it continues communication with the Governor of Guam and the Department of Civil Defense and Office of Homeland Security.
