  • China military conducts live-fire drill in Tibet

Days after the Ministry of External Affairs said that diplomatic channels were "being used" to defuse the stand-off with China in Doklam in the Sikkim region, Chinese state media indicated on Saturday that there was "no room for negotiations" and withdrawal of Indian troops was the pre-condition for any diplomatic solution.

It further specified that the troopers deployed for the drill are part of the People's Liberation Army's two plateau brigades. It has been noticed that Indian Foreign Minister Subrahmanyam Jaishankar recently made positive remarks in Singapore, saying that "India and China should not let differences become disputes".

According to the report by CCTV, the brigade has always been stationed around the middle and lower reaches of the Brahmaputra (Yarlung Zangbo in Chinese) River which flows into India and Bangladesh and is responsible for frontline combat missions.

The live-fire exercises included the troops' quick delivery, use of anti-tank grenades and missiles. Beijing is reportedly mulling the idea of building multiple dams at Yarlung Zangbo, which may hinder the flow of water towards India. "The 11-hour exercise covering a dozen elements was testimony to the PLA's combined strike capability", the report said.

However, this is not the first time that reports of drills by the Chinese military have made headlines.

China and India have been engaged in the standoff in the Dokalam area near the Bhutan tri-junction since last month after a Chinese Army's construction party attempted to build a road.

"China should be calm seeing India's rise".

"The PLA wanted to demonstrate it could easily overpower its Indian counterparts", it quoted Beijing-based military commentator Zhou Chenming as saying.

The PLA brigade which participated in the drill, reported Chinese state-run publication Global Times, is usually deployed in southern Tibet, with borders with Arunachal Pradesh, the easternmost state of India.

"(By staging) a small-scale drill, China wants to control the problem and lower the risk of shots being fired", he said.

On July 10, Tibet's mobile communication agency conducted a drill in Tibet's capital Lhasa, where members of the agency practiced setting up a temporary mobile network to secure communications in an emergency.
