Two-front threat Army chief

Army Chief General M M Naravane addresses an annual press conference at the Manekshaw Centre in New Delhi

Army chief General M M Naravane on Tuesday hoped for an amicable resolution of the military standoff with China in Ladakh through talks based on ‘mutual and equal security’ even as he said India will have to be prepared to deal with a ‘two-front’ threat scenario due to the potent and collusive threat from China and Pakistan.

Gen Naravane at the same time asserted that Indian troops are fully prepared to deal with any eventuality along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) and will hold their ground as long as it takes to achieve the ‘national goals and objectives’.He said through the medium of talks with China, India is trying to reach a solution that is ‘acceptable and not detrimental’ to the national interests, adding ‘if the talks get prolonged, so be it’.

Regarding increasing security challenges at the LAC, he said a need was felt about ‘rebalancing’ of troops along the northern borders and subsequently steps have been taken to put adequate focus on the borders with China.
