Disengagement, de-escalation way forward: Rajnath Singh on eastern Ladakh
4/2/2024 9:59:45 PM
Agencies
NEW DELHI, Apr 2: With the India-China military face-off continuing in eastern Ladakh, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh on Tuesday said the Indian troops are standing "firm" and the ongoing talks between the two sides for a peaceful resolution of the matter will continue as disengagement and de-escalation is the way forward. In an address to the top commanders of the Army, Singh reaffirmed the faith of the billion-plus citizens in the force as one of the "most-trusted and inspiring" organisations in the country.
The Army commanders deliberated extensively on national security challenges along the borders with China and Pakistan and ways to boost the force's overall combat capability.
The defence minister, complimenting the Army leadership for successfully taking ahead the country's "defence and security" vision to new heights, said the role of the force is very important in nation building. In his remarks, Singh also lauded the Border Roads Organisation, saying its efforts have led to the "quantum improvement" in road communication along the western and northern frontiers. On the current situation along the northern borders, Singh expressed full confidence that while the troops are standing firm, the ongoing talks for peaceful resolution will continue and disengagement and de-escalation is the way forward, the defence ministry said in a statement.
The Indian and Chinese troops are locked in a standoff in certain friction points in eastern Ladakh for nearly four years even as the two sides have completed disengagement from several areas following extensive diplomatic and military talks.
Referring to the situation along the borders with Pakistan, Singh complimented the Army's response to cross-border terrorism, adding that the proxy war by the "adversary" continues.
The defence minister complimented the "excellent synergy" between the Central Armed Police Forces, local police and Army in tackling the menace of terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir.
"The synergised operations in the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir are contributing to increased stability in the region and the same should continue," he said.
Singh lauded the forces for the high standard of operational preparedness and capabilities, which he said he has always experienced first hand during his visits to forward areas.
Delving into the complex world situation, Singh said it affects everyone globally.
"Unconventional and asymmetric warfare, including hybrid war, will be part of the future conventional wars. Cyber, information, communication, trade and finance have all become an inseparable part of future conflicts," he added.
This necessitates that the armed forces will have to keep all these facets in consideration while planning and formulating strategies," the defence minister said.
He highlighted the stellar role played by the Army in guarding the country's borders and fighting terrorism, apart from providing assistance to the civil administration in every need of the hour.
"The Army is present in every domain, from security, humanitarian assistance and disaster relief, medical assistance to maintaining the stable internal situation in the country," he said.
"The role of the Indian Army is very important in nation building as also in the overall national development," he noted.
The defence minister complimented the leadership of the Army for successfully taking ahead the country's "defence and security" vision to new heights.
He also hailed the Army's approach on the infusion and absorption of cutting-edge technology.
Singh paid tributes to all the bravehearts for making the ultimate sacrifice in the defence of the motherland.
The Army Commanders' Conference is an apex-level biannual event that is held in April and October every year. The conference is an institutional platform for conceptual-level deliberations, culminating in making important policy decisions for the Army.
The commanders comprehensively deliberated upon all aspects of the existing security scenarios, the situation along the borders and the hinterland and the challenges for the present security apparatus.
