Rajnath Singh briefs former defence ministers on China border situation | India News


NEW DELHI: Defence minister Rajnath Singh on Friday held a meeting with former defence ministers AK Antony and Sharad Pawar.
The former defence ministers were briefed by chief of defence staff Gen Bipin Rawat and Army chief Gen Manoj Mukund Naravane on the situation along the border with China, news agency ANI reported quoting sources.
“The two former defence ministers had some clarifications and doubts on the situation which were clarified by the CDS and the Army chief,” sources added.
India and China completed disengagement in the Pangong Tso area in February this year but there’s been little headway at remaining friction points.
While China continues to blame India’s alleged troop build-up for the LAC stand-off, India says Beijing’s violation of bilateral agreements is the reason for the border strife.
Earlier this week, external affairs minister Jaishankar met his Chinese counterpart Wang Yi Wang and said that any unilateral change in the status quo along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) was “not acceptable” to India and that the overall ties can only develop after full restoration of peace and tranquillity in eastern Ladakh.
