Army top brass to discuss Chinese actions at LAC
June 11, 2021  19:56
Amid heightened military activities by the Chinese military opposite eastern Ladakh on its side on the Line of Actual Control, top Indian Army leadership would be briefed about the force's operational preparedness at a high-level meeting to be held here next week.

"The preparedness of the Indian Amy to deal with any situation would be discussed at the meeting to be attended by all commander-in-chief rank officers," a source told ANI.

The sources said that the meeting is scheduled to be held from June 16 for two days where other security issues faced by the country would also come up for discussion.

Army chief General Manoj Mukund Naravane has been monitoring the preparedness of the force all along the LAC and has personally visited the Ladakh sector seven-eight times to take stock of the situation there.

The Chinese military is holding large-scale military exercises in its traditional training areas including the locations from where they had diverted towards the Indian front in an aggressive manner last summer.

The Indian Army is hopeful of resolving the issue soon as they have been holding talks with the Chinese military.

The military and diplomatic parleys have helped in the withdrawal of troops from the Pangong lake area but the stalemate in the other friction points still continues.

India and China have been engaged in a military standoff for more than a year now after the Chinese showed aggression along the Indian areas.

The Indian side retaliated heavily and deployed more than 50,000 troops and heavy weaponry to check the Chinese aggression. -- ANI
