As the Chinese military continues activities on its side of the Line of Actual Control, opposite eastern Ladakh, top Indian Army leadership has decided to conduct a high-level meeting. In the meeting, which is scheduled to take place from June 16 for two days, the force’s operational preparedness would be discussed, with respect to issues of China and other security issues faced by the country.
“The preparedness of the Indian Amy to deal with any situation would be discussed at the meeting to be attended by all commander-in-chief rank officers,” a source said.
India-China At Crossroads, Ties Depend on Beijing’s View On 1988 Consensus: EAM Jaishankar
Last month, while addressing the nation, External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar had touched upon the country’s rough status quo equation with neighbouring state China and the future course of action with respect to the same.
Citing the 1988 consensus, from which China departed in 2020 with the heightening in tensions post-Galwan, the minister said that the two countries are presently at ‘crossroads’, and which direction it will go in the future will depend on whether China chooses for or against adhering to the 1988 consensus.
