Bhadauria said the Indian armed forces were constantly monitoring the situation in terms of additional deployments or any changes on India as well as the Chinese side.
Indian armed forces have been more vigilant and alert on the Indo-China border, especially after the last year’s clashes with Chinese forces in Eastern Ladakh, Air Chief Marshal RKS Bhadauria said on Saturday while interacting with media after the Combined Graduation Parade of newly-trained flight cadets of various branches of Indian Air Force at the Air Force Academy, Dundigal, on the outskirts of Hyderabad.
Bhadauria said the Indian armed forces were constantly monitoring the situation in terms of additional deployments or any changes on the Indian as well as the Chinese side.
He said the discussions were going on between India and China for the next round of talks. “There is a proposal for Commander-level talks and decisions will be taken. The first attempt is to continue with talks and do disengagement of balance friction points and follow it with de-escalation,” Bhadauria said.
He, however, said there was no question of letting the guard down on the borders and the Indian forces were better placed compared to the last year and were on high alert all through the year.
“Simultaneously, the ground reality is being monitored closely in terms of current leftover locations, deployments, or any changes. We are taking all required actions on our parts,” he said.
