Kevadia: Union Defence Minister Rajnath Singh on Friday (March 5) saluted the selfless courage of the soldiers during the Eastern Ladakh standoff with China. The Defence Minister addressed the Combined Commanders Conference today at Kevadia.
Singh later took it to his official Twitter handle to express himself. He wrote, “India’s resolute response on the borders has helped in a positive and peaceful resolution of certain significant issues. I salute the selfless courage displayed by the soldiers during the recent Eastern Ladakh standoff.”
It has been almost a year since India and China are in a standoff in eastern Ladakh along the Line of Actual Control (LAC). The standoff was a result of aggressive border skirmishes by the Chinese army. During the standoff, twenty Indian soldiers and an unspecified number of Chinese soldiers lost their lives.
“I spoke (with commanders) on a wide range of issues pertaining to the defence and security of the nation, the emerging nature of military threats, the critical role of the Armed Forces in meeting these challenges and the nature of warfare in future,” he said in another tweet.
“Our ability to secure India’s territorial integrity and sovereignty from external threats and internal challenges have been strengthened in the recent years. Our forces today are proactive and more resolute in their response,” Singh further said.
