New Delhi: China has transported thousands of tonnes of military vehicles and equipment to Tibet since its involvement in a border standoff with India, according to Chinese state media.

The reports said the equipment was moved to the south of Kunlun mountains in northern Tibet by the Western Theatre Command of People’s Liberation Army. The Western Theatre Command oversees the restive regions of Xinjiang and Tibet, and handles border issues with India.

The hardware was moved simultaneously by road and rail from across the entire region, the South China Morning Post quoted the PLA Daily as saying.

The report, however, did not say whether the movement of the military equipment was to support the exercise or for other reasons.

On Monday, it was reported that China's military has conducted live-fire exercises in Tibet.

The PLA conducted live-fire exercises in Southwest China's Tibet Autonomous Region, reported state-run China Central Television (CCTV) 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.

The PLA Tibet command guards the Line of Actual Control (LAC) of the India-China border along several sections connecting the mountainous Tibetan region.

The live-fire drills included the quick delivery of troops and different military units working together on joint attacks.

China and India have been engaged in a standoff in the Doklam area in the Sikkim sector, where Indian troops stopped road construction by Chinese soldiers on June 16.

Doka La is the Indian name for the region which Bhutan recognises as Dokalam, while China claims it as part of its Donglang region.
Of the 3,488-km-long India-China border from Jammu and Kashmir to Arunachal Pradesh, a 220-km section falls in Sikkim.
