China’s People’s Liberation Army on Monday warned India not to underestimate its determination to safeguard what it considers sovereign territory. The statement comes amid an ongoing standoff between the two neighbors over a contested region in the Doklam Plateau.

Earlier on Thursday, India’s Minister of External Affairs Sushma Swaraj addressed the Rajya Sabha and said that the Government of India is ready to hold talks with China if both sides pull back their forces to end the standoff. Tensions have been high since June, when China began construction in the Doklam Plateau, an area also claimed by Indian ally Bhutan .

The situation became even more tense when state run Chinese media released the video footage of Tibetan brigade of the Chinese Army conducting a live-fire drill recently on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau. The drill involved the rapid movement of troops, the use of digital devices and heavy machine guns carried out at an altitude of 5,000 meter.
