Situation Along Border With China Improved After Wuhan Summit, Says Army Chief Gen Rawat


The situation along the nearly 4,000-km long border between India and China has improved following the summit talks between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chinese President Xi Jinping in Wuhan last year, Army Chief Gen Bipin Rawat said on Thursday.

He said certain “directives” were issued to various formations along the border following the Wuhan summit and they are being followed. “We have been able to maintain peace and tranquillity along the Chinese border, particularly after the Wuhan summit. Common directions were issued and they are being followed,” he said addressing a press conference ahead of Army Day on January 15.

At the same time, he made it clear that same policy is being followed in protecting the border with Pakistan as well as with China, indicating that the Indian Army was not lowering its guard along the Chinese frontier.  Read More
