BEIJING, Aug. 28 (Xinhua) -- China said Monday it had made on-site checks of India's withdrawal of personnel and equipment from Dong Lang (Doklam) after a months-long military stand-off.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying said that Chinese personnel made the on-spot check around 2:30 p.m. (Beijing Time), adding that China will continue to safeguard its territorial sovereignty according to historical boundary treaties.

On June 18, over 270 armed Indian troops with two bulldozers crossed the boundary into Doklam, China's sovereign territory, to obstruct Chinese infrastructure construction.
