The maiden sea trial of China's first aircraft carrier "has attained the anticipated objectives", a spokesman from the Defense Ministry said on Wednesday.

Ministry spokesman Yang Yujun said at a regular press briefing that the carrier has returned to the shipyard where the refurbishing and test work will continue. Yang did not elaborate on the "anticipated objectives."

The vessel, the former Soviet aircraft carrier Varyag, has been totally refitted for its new role as a platform for research and training in the Dalian shipyard in northeast China's Liaoning Province. It departed from the shipyard on August 10 for its maiden sea trial.

China is the last permanent member of the UN Security Council that owns such warship.

The United States, Britain, France, Russia, Spain, Italy, India, Brazil and Thailand operate a total of 21 aircraft carriers around the world.

China's aircraft carrier is better than India's.

The carrier will keep peace in the South China Sea.:)

Absolutely correct.

And may I add China needs not one carrier but 100 to patrol every corner of this global.

Then, and only then will there be world peace.

Do you mean to suggest that only when there are PRC warships in every part of the world, there'll be global peace? I think it'll have the opposite effect and will bring about conflict because not as many countries as you'd like to believe think that China is benign!
