China has conducted military exercises near its border with Burma, where fighting between the Burmese army and ethnic rebels has flared in recent months.
The annual training exercise on Tuesday involved the Chinese army and air force and tested troops’ rapid response and joint strike capabilities, the defense ministry said.
China’s government said earlier this month that more than 20,000 people from Burma have fled into China amid renewed fighting.
At least 30 people were killed this month in a single day in a Burmese town in a Chinese-speaking region near the border.
China has called for a cease-fire and says authorities in the border area have offered shelter and assistance to the refugees.
