The Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) will start a live-ammunition drill on Tuesday in Southwest Yunnan province, close to the border with Myanmar, military sources said on Monday.
Zhao Picong, spokesperson for the PLA Chengdu Military Area Command, said the joint drill, which will involve troops from the PLA Army and Air Force, is scheduled in accordance with training plans.
No aircraft will be allowed to enter the airspace of the drill without permission, and vehicles entering the drill areas in Gengma and Zhenkang counties will be subject to traffic controls, according to a PLA statement.
Locals will not be allowed to enter the drill areas without a permit.
The PLA said Chinese authorities have informed Myanmar of the drill, and an end date will be announced later.
