Ladakh : Days after fresh confrontation with People’s Liberation army of China in eastern Ladakh, the Indian Army Chief General M M Naravane has arrived in Ladakh on Thursday morning to have a first hand look at the ground situation. Naravane, as per official sources, will take stock of operational preparedness amid escalating posture between India and China on South Pangong and elsewhere during his two-day visit to the region.
The defence sources added that the Indian Army has bolstered its presence in at least three strategic heights in the southern bank of Pangong lake in eastern Ladakh, days after foiling China’s provocative actions to change the status quo in the area. The military sources further added saying that the Chinese army had made multiple attempts to change the status quo in the southern area of Pangong Lake in eastern Ladakh which was foiled by the alert Indian troops.
India and China have held multiple Brigade Commander-level talks in Chushul with a focus on bringing down tensions in the Pangong lake area, all of which have failed. Indian military further claimed that it has achieved tactical gains in eastern Ladakh in the last few days by occupying a number of strategically important hill tops and locations.
