Despite the withdrawal of the army, China remains a challenge, the Navy Chief said this about Pakistan
Indian Navy Chief Admiral R. Hari Kumar said that China continues to be a formidable challenger, which has increased its presence not only on India's land border but also in the maritime domain.
There has been tension between India and China over the Line of Control for many years. However, earlier this month, China started the process of withdrawing its army. But so far China remains a big challenge for India. Top officials of the Indian Army said that China still remains a threat. Speaking on this, Indian Navy Chief Admiral R Hari Kumar said that China remains a difficult challenge for the Indian Army. China is continuously increasing its presence not only on the land border of India but also in the maritime area. He said that the Navy is keeping a regular watch in the Indian Ocean region.
Army Chief Manoj Pandey said that the army has learned a lot from the eastern Ladakh border standoff. These include maintaining a high level of preparedness and improving infrastructure at all times. He also answered many questions during the discussion at the India Defense Conclave. Top officers of the Indian Army say that China is continuously supporting Pakistan. He is making Pakistan strong and pitting it against India.
Admiral Kumar said that competition is taking place on a daily basis. In such a situation, war with potential opponents can never be ruled out. He said that China remains a difficult challenge in this regard. It has increased its presence not only on our land border but also in the maritime domain through anti-piracy operations so that it can normalize its naval presence in the Indian Ocean region.
In response to this question, Army Chief General Manoj Pandey said that we have made progress in terms of the withdrawal of troops from the standoff points. The Indian Army still has two standoff points. He expressed hope that a solution would be found soon regarding these impasse points. When asked about the situation in Jammu and Kashmir, the Army Chief said that the situation in Jammu and Kashmir is completely under control.
