Chinese Ministry of Defence spokesman Yang Yujun invited anyone to take a look at aircraft carrier Liaoning. Speaking at monthly news briefing on Dec. 29 Yujun said that the invitation is open to anyone as long as relevant laws and rules are not broken and there is no obstruction to the navigation of the ship.

Yang made this announcement as he was responding to a question regarding the recent monitoring of the carrier by Japan Maritime Self Defence Force ships and aircraft last week.

The carrier was brought from Ukraine named Varyag in 1998 and carried to China with the claim of using for touristic purposes.
