The sea trials of China's aircraft carrier platform have achieved expected results, a spokesperson with the Ministry of National Defense of China said Wednesday.

At a route press conference, the spokesperson Yang Yujun answered reporters' questions regarding the sea trials of China's aircraft carrier platform and the test run of the Compass Navigation Satellite System.

Yang said subsequent scientific research experiments of the platform are being carried out on the sea according to the schedule.

He noted that the scientific research experiments of the aircraft carrier platform will be a long course and the aircraft carrier platform will continue to sail out and carry out scientific research experiments and trainings in the future according to requirements of work.

Regarding foreign media's reports saying Russia refused to sell aircraft carrier arresting gear to China, Yang said that the report is baseless.

He said most key systems and gears of China's aircraft carrier platform, including the arresting gear, are developed or re-developed by China independently.
