China's military has conducted live-fire exercises in the remote mountainous Tibet region amid the ongoing standoff between Indian and Chinese troops at the Dokalam area in the Sikkim sector.


The People's Liberation Army conducted the 11-hour long live-fire exercises in Southwest China's Tibet Autonomous Region, state-run China Central Television (CCTV) reported on Friday, without mentioning the exact timing of the drills.


The brigade that conducted the drills was from the PLA's Tibet Military Command and is one of China's two plateau mountain brigades.
