Indian Army conducted a live-fire drill in Tezu town of northeastern Arunachal Pradesh, claimed by China as “South Tibet”, on Friday (March 30).

The soldiers displayed immaculate coordination as they ran to their positions and prepared shell launchers for firing. A soldier, Pushap Singh, said the army was always ready, throughout the year to respond to an attack by enemies.

India and China share a 3,500 km (2,175 miles) frontier, large parts of which are disputed. The two fought a brief but bloody war in 1962 which ended in India‘s defeat.

Last year, the nuclear-armed neighbours were engaged in a 73-day standoff at Doklam in the Sikkim sector. The stand-off, which emerged after Chinese troops were stopped by the Indian army from constructing roads along the Doklam border, was called off after both sides arrived at an understanding over the disengagement of their personnel
