Union Defence Minister Rajnath Singh has instructed top army commanders to constantly watch the Line of Actual Control, as tensions between India and China over their continuing border conflict remain high (LAC). Singh commented during the Army Commanders’ Conference, alluding mainly to the border impasse in eastern Ladakh.
Singh expressed confidence in the army’s capacity to handle any situation but highlighted the need for ongoing negotiations to achieve a peaceful resolution. As disengagement had been conducted in four rounds, including Galvan Valley, Gogra (PP-17A), Pangong TSO, and Hot Springs, he recommended withdrawal and de-escalation as the best action moving ahead (PP-15).
The army has hastily constructed infrastructure in eastern Ladakh to bolster border patrols. In addition, Singh emphasized the significance of cyber information, mass communication, commerce, and money in future wars.
For some months, the continuous tensions between India and China have been a source of anxiety, with both sides accusing the other of border transgressions. Although efforts have been made to resolve the conflict peacefully, the situation remains dangerous and requires continued monitoring.
The Indian government has reaffirmed its dedication to safeguarding territorial integrity while simultaneously seeking a peaceful end to the current conflict. The border situation between India and China will continue to be monitored, and attempts to find a peaceful resolution will also continue.
