General Rawat said, ‘Today we are working in a very complex, uncertain and unstable environment. There is a big, small war in almost every region of the world. So if we have to protect ourselves, our country, the integrity of our country and our people, then we need strong military force. ‘

He said, ‘But then are we saying that the military force should prepare for war? No. Military forces must develop capacity to bring peace to the region. If we do not have strong military forces then the opponents will take advantage of us. General Rawat’s statement is significant because India and China have been facing a deadlock in East Ladakh for the last six months.
