China's Ministry of National Defense (MOD) confirmed late Friday that its military forces were maintaining "normal combat readiness and training" activity along the country's border with the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK).

The MOD issued the statement in reaction to recent media reports alleging the PLA (People's Liberation Army) Air Force had been mobilizing bombers while raising their combat readiness to "high alert" in response to rising tensions on the Korean Peninsula.

The MOD said such allegations were "inconsistent with the facts."

In late February, the MOD issued a similar statement denying the PLA was sending a 1,000-man military unit to reinforce China's border with North Korea, deeming such reports as "sheer fabrication."
