New Delhi Army Chief General MM Narwane said on Tuesday that he hoped the Indian Army and Chinese Army would be able to reach an agreement to withdraw troops from the disputed areas in eastern Ladakh and reduce tension.
Narwane said in a seminar that senior commanders of India and China are holding talks on ways to reduce tensions in eastern Ladakh. “We are hopeful of reaching an agreement that is mutually agreeable and genuinely beneficial,” he said.
CDS Rawat warned China a few days ago
Addressing a Bevinar in the capital Delhi a few days ago, Chief of Defense Staff (CDS) General Rawat said in two words that 'the situation on the LAC remains tense' and that “the prospects of war with China are not visible.” But there is no denying that border-dispute, infiltration and provocation without (China's) military action can ever turn into a major Conflict (violent conflict). “
According to General Rawat, due to India's strong response, China has “suffered the brunt of its misadventure.” The CDS's reference was to the initial incursions on the LAC in the month of May and the large losses suffered by the Chinese army in the Galvan Valley and India's authority over the Kailash Range (Rechin La, Mukherpari, Gurung and Magar Hill) south of Pangong-tso Lake.
