The top brass of the Indian Army and Air Force would be assessing their preparedness and infrastructure requirements along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) as the militaries of both India and China continue to remain in a standoff position in eastern Ladakh.
The Indian Air Force brass would be meeting this week from April 6 to discuss the security situation including air operations along the northern borders.
The Indian Army commanders led by Army Chief General Manoj Mukund Naravane would be assessing the present deployments along the eastern Ladakh and northeastern sectors from April 18 onwards in the bi-annual commanders' conference.
The top brass of the Indian Army had jointly discussed the infrastructure requirements and developments required by the Indian side from Ladakh to Arunachal Pradesh during a conference in Lucknow recently.
India has made several changes in its deployments after the aggression shown by Chinese troops in April-May 2020.
India and China have been talking to each other at both military and diplomatic levels to address the issues but so far they have not been able to do so mainly because of Beijing’s reluctance. In recent talks to address the Patroling Point 15 friction, they proposed a solution that was not acceptable to India.
Indian security establishment led by National Security Adviser Ajit Doval has been of the view that the issue would be resolved only if the Chinese did complete disengagement and went back to pre April 2020 positions.
The Indian side has strengthened its deployments manifold all along the LAC. The Indian Air Force has also started building advanced bases in the forward areas including infrastructure to operate fighter jets and attack helicopters from the forward fields such as Nyoma.
