Dehradun. Army Chief General MM Narwane gave a statement regarding the ongoing border dispute with China and Nepal. Narwane said, “I assure everyone that the situation on our borders with China is fully under control.” We are in constant touch. There have been talks at the Corps Commander level and meetings of commanders of equivalent rank at the local level are continuing. Narwane arrived in Dehradun on Saturday to participate in the passing out parade of the Indian Military Academy (IMA).
He said that our relations with Nepal are also strong. We have geographical, cultural, historical and religious connections and people of both countries are interlinked. This relationship will remain strong even further. Narwane said that as far as Jammu and Kashmir is concerned. More than 15 militants have been killed in the last 10 to 15 days. All this is due to good coordination between security forces and agencies. Most operations against terrorists in Kashmir are conducted after inputs from local people. This indicates that the local people have also been completely disturbed by terrorism. They want the situation to be normal.
India and China relationship is not good since one month
There is a tussle between the Indian and Chinese armies in Sikkim along with Ladakh. Recently, some rounds of talks were held between the core commanders of the two countries. After this the collision has reduced. China on Wednesday said that a mutual agreement has been reached between the two countries to withdraw the army. India has already made it clear that tensions between the two countries will end completely when China withdraws 10,000 troops from the border. Earlier in the first week of May, soldiers of India and China also came face to face in Sikkim.
