According to a strategy document, China is to focus on projecting its military presence beyond its borders at sea.

The navy will shift its focus to "open seas protection", rather than "offshore waters defence" alone.

The State Council said that it will also speed up developing its cyber force to tackle "grave security threats".

China has been accused of aggressively pursuing territorial claims in the South China Sea which has sparked concern in Washington.

The strategy document highlighted four areas of critical importance - the ocean, outer space, nuclear force and cyber space.

Its recent naval policy has prompted the most controversy.
