Top US diplomat Nicholas Burns told members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee during his confirmation hearing on Wednesday that the US will challenge China where it must.
India has strengthened overall military preparedness at LAC using a fleet of remotely piloted aircraft and other assets to deal with any Chinese misadventure in the sector.
The military stand-off between India and China was triggered by People’s Liberation Army (PLA) soldiers crossing the LAC and taking up positions inside Indian territory in the summer of 2020.
Since the disengagement in the Pangong Tso area, China is dragging its feet over pulling out from other areas where the LAC was breached last summer.
The Army also said that the report mentioning that agreements with China have collapsed is 'false and baseless'
India is learnt to have insisted on a faster disengagement process in areas such as Hot Springs, Gogra and Depsang to defuse tension in eastern Ladakh.
‘Mark my words, our land in Depsang is gone… Government of India's cowardice will lead to tragic consequences in the future,’ Rahul Gandhi said
India’s statement comes in the backdrop of a US firm's report that said a China-linked group recently targeted India’s power grid system
Recorded Future, a Massachusetts-based company, in its recent report details the alleged campaign conducted by a China-linked group RedEcho, which reportedly targeted the Indian power sector.
External affairs minister S Jaishankar and his Chinese counterpart Wang Yi have agreed to establish a hotline for 'timely' communication and exchange of views
Last week, Indian and Chinese armies carried out a 'synchronised' disengagement of frontline troops along the banks of Pangong Tso in Ladakh, putting an end to a nine-month-long military standoff.
The two sides held a Corps Commander-level meeting at the Moldo border point on the Chinese side of the Line of Actual Control (LAC) on Saturday.
Defence Minister Rajnath Singh also asserted that India will not allow any ‘unilateral action’ on its borders
The 30-member panel, which is presided over by senior BJP leader Jual Oram, also consists of Congress leader Rahul Gandhi. They are likely to visit Ladakh in May-June
Rahul Gandhi says, 'the responsibility of the PM is to protect the territory of India but he has ceded Indian Territory to the Chinese'.
‘We will stand with friends, partners and allies to advance our shared prosperity, security and values in the Indo-Pacific region,’ Emily J Horne, spokesperson, US National Security Council (NSC) said
India and China held extensive deliberations on modalities for disengagement of troops from all the friction points in eastern Ladakh during the ninth round of military talks, officials said
Meanwhile, the MEA has said that India has kept a constant watch on all developments along the border in Arunachal Pradesh
