"The Chinese military will continue to carry out its mission and responsibilities, strengthen its patrols and garrisons in the Donglang area and resolutely safeguard national sovereignty and security," he added.

The standoff was resolved on Monday as Indian troops withdrew from the area and China, without clearly saying so, gave enough indications that it had halted work on a road construction project that triggered the row. India sent troops into the area in June to stop work on the road in the remote, uninhabited territory. New Delhi said at the time the road would alter the status quo and pose a serious security threat. Ren also said Chinese troops would "resolutely maintain the country's territorial sovereignty and legitimate rights", adding that the Chinese said had used military diplomacy and border contact channels to promote the resolution of the issue.
