He said that Pakistan is doing earlier activities on the western border, but we have clearly said that we will not tolerate this. We are alert on the northern border, and are ready to face any challenge. Eight rounds have been negotiated, and now the ninth round will be held. The matter will be resolved by negotiation, but we are ready for any situation. This entire year has been full of challenges due to the northern border and COVID-19. We faced both of them, deployed the army as needed on short notice, and helped all the states and people. Build a quarantine camp.
At the same time, he said that changes are being made in the army to meet the challenge of the future, and the focus is on technology. Efforts are on to modernize the army, for which necessary budget has also been got. Our operational preparedness is enough, and the morale of the soldiers is very high. Our capacity has also increased considerably than before, and measures have been taken to avoid cold.
Army Chief General Manoj Mukund Narwane said that wherever there is danger on our border, we constantly review it. They deploy accordingly. There is no opinion on the basis of input and make policy that there is a danger from China and Pakistan. According to the army chief, every year the Chinese army comes forward for training, then later they leave. However, no one has left behind a place of dispute. He said that there has been no change in the situation in eastern Ladakh. The matter will be resolved through mutual trust only when the army withdraws from the forward area.
