New Delhi (SunstarTV Bureau): Indian Army Chief General Manoj Mukund Naravane said that Indian Army is on high alert in both Eastern Ladakh and the Northern Border with China.
During an annual presser on Tuesday, Naravane informed, “We have gone into a winter deployment situation. We (India and China) will reach amicable solution. However, we are ready to meet any eventuality.”
Naravane further added, “First biggest challenge was Covid and the next was the situation at the northern border. There was no cause of concern on the logistical issues and the force’s operational preparedness is of high order. “Morale of the troops is high.”
“The situation at the Line of Actual Control (LAC) is the same as it was last year. The status quo remains the same. We have received directions from the government to remain in the same position where we are deployed at the friction point.”
“In depth area of the Tibet region, every year Chinese People’s Liberation Army troops come for training and after training they leave. Troops from some training areas have been vacated,” added Naravane.
India and China are engaged in a nine-month-long standoff at the LAC in Eastern Ladakh. Despite several levels of dialogue, there has not been any breakthrough and the deadlock continues.
