Military Drill, Defence Secy-level Talks Set To Boost India-china Relations

India and China are now set to resume their annual “Hand-in-Hand” (HiH) combat exercise, after it got derailed last year due to the 73-day Doklam stand-off, signalling their intent to step up military-to-military ties and confidence-building measures.

Sources said on Wednesday the “final planning conference” for the 7th edition of HiH exercise, which will be held in China’s Chengdu region in December, is slated for the first week of November. “The conference will finalise the exact dates and modalities for the exercise, which will focus on counter-terror operations. Around 175 soldiers from the 11 Sikh Light Infantry battalion and other arms and services from the Northern Army Command will take part,” said a source.

The defence secretary-level annual dialogue is also slated to be held in December, even as the two countries are now also giving finishing touches to the “operationalisation” of the top-level hotline between their militaries. Read more
