Beijing: Amid rising tensions with India over a border stand-off in Sikkim, China has tested a military tank in Tibet.
Confirming the trial of 35-tonne light tank, People’s Liberation Army spokesperson Colonel Wu Qian said it was not directed at any country.
“A type of tank undertook trial on the plateau. The purpose is to test the parameters of the equipment and is not targeted against any country,” Wu told reporters here.
Five Indian states have a border with Tibet. India and China fought a war in 1962 over their disputed border. (IANS)
