Maintaining High Preparedness Key Lesson From Ladakh Standoff: Indian Army Chief


Maintaining a “higher level of operational preparedness at all time” and improving infrastructure, were some of the key lessons from the eastern Ladakh border standoff, Army Chief General Manoj Pande said on Tuesday, as reported by news agency PTI.

The report added that, in response to a question on next step after recent disengagement along the Line of Control, Army chief said, “We have made progress in terms of disengagement from friction points. We still have two friction points where we need to move forward”.

“We are hopeful as we move forward, talking through both military and diplomatic levels. And, I am sure we will be able to find resolution towards these friction points. That is our immediate aim to disengage from these friction points, before we look at to next step, of perhaps, de-escalation, which will involve pull back of troops,” Army Chief added during an interaction held at India Defence Conclave in New Delhi.

On situation in Jammu and Kashmir, the Army chief said, “The situation in J&K is well under control.” Also, the abrogation of Article 370 and the kind of “whole of nation approach” adopted have resulted in a “number of positives”.
