BEIJING, Sept. 24 -- The drills conducted by the Tibet Military Command of the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) in recent days are within the annual training plan and not targeted at any specific country, said Senior Colonel Tan Kefei, new spokesperson for China’s Ministry of National Defense, at a regular press conference on Thursday.

Snr. Col. Tan stated that the PLA Tibet Military Command recently organized several round-the-clock live-fire training exercises, in a bid to test the troops’ adaptability and strike capability in ultra-high-altitude areas.
