Chief of Defence Staff (CDS) General Bipin Rawat said, India wants peace and tranquility across its borders.
Speaking at US India Strategic and Partnership Forum, USISPF yesterday, General Rawat said, despite China’s aggressive misadventures, India has adopted an adequate measure to control and stop these misadventures. He said the threat from Pakistan side is like a proxy war but Pakistan will not succeed in its attempt.
General Rawat said, India and USA have signed several defence agreements, with potential for more such agreements in the near future. He expressed hope that this will enable better strategic collaboration for the two countries.
General Rawat cautioned armed forces to be prepared to meet immediate crisis and concurrently prepare for the future. He said necessary steps were taken so see that the country’s frontline soldiers are not affected by COVID.
