China has deployed troops in considerable numbers across Ladakh: Army chief
New Delhi: China has deployed troops in considerable numbers across Ladakh, Army Chief General MM Naravane said while pointing out that it remains a matter of concern.
His statement came ahead of the 13th round of talks between the two countries on the Ladakh standoff and disengagement of military forces.
“China has deployed in considerable numbers all across Eastern Ladakh and Northern front right up to our Eastern command. Definitely, there has been an increase in their deployment in the forward areas which remains a matter of concern for us,” Naravane was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.
“We are regularly monitoring all their movements. Based on the inputs we get, we are also carrying out matching developments both in infrastructure as well in terms of troops that are needed to counter any threat. At the moment, we are quite well poised to meet any eventuality.”
