New Delhi,15 Dec

Rajnath Singh, the Defence Minister of India on Monday highlighted the long military standoff between India and China along the Line of Actual Control and said that China indulged in “unprovoked aggression” on the Eastern Ladakh border. He praised the “exemplary courage” shown by the Indian defence troops.

Rajnath Singh, while speaking at FICCI’s annual conclave, said that “The unprovoked aggression on our Himalayan frontiers is a reminder of how world is changing, how existing agreements are being challenged, how power is being asserted not just in Himalayas but across Indo-Pacific.”

The Defence Minister also said, “There is big build up of armed forces at LAC in Ladakh. In these testing times our forces have shown exemplary courage and remarkable fortitude. They fought the PLA with utmost bravery and forced them to go back. The coming generations of this nation will be proud of what our forces have managed to achieve this year.”

It is worth mentioning that there has been a long military standoff between India and China in Eastern Ladakh since May. Even several rounds of meetings between the two countries at the military level have not been able to solve the dispute.
