Indian Army Chief General MM Naravane will visit Ladakh on Tuesday and Wednesday to discuss with ground commanders the six-week standoff with Chinese military, Army sources said. The Chief of the Army Staff will visit forward locations and interact with troops on the ground, they said.
According to Army officials, all commanders are in the national capital for the second phase of the commanders’ conference. Army Commanders Conference is being held on June 22-23 to review the operational situation on both the northern and western fronts.
The meeting comes at a time when India and China are holding military-level talks to defuse the border tensions after the violent face-off in Ladakh’s Galwan Valley in which 20 Indian soldiers lost their lives.
