Amid India-China standoff, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh on Monday met with Chief of Defence Staff Bipin Rawat, Navy Chief Admiral Karambir Singh and Army Chief General Manoj Mukund Naravane to assess the situation at the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in Ladakh.
The meeting comes amid the reports that there has not been any de-escalation from the Chinese side at the Line of Actual Control in Ladakh’s Galwan Valley.
On Sunday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had asserted that India has given a befitting reply to those who cast an evil eye on its territory in Ladakh, stating that while the country honours the spirit of friendship, it is also capable of giving an appropriate response to any adversary.
“Those who cast an evil eye on Indian soil in Ladakh have got a befitting response. India honours the spirit of friendship. It is also capable of giving an appropriate response to any adversary, without shying away,” he said while addressing the nation through his monthly radio show ‘Mann Ki Baat’ without naming China.
