Rare announcement on the meeting of the three Defence Chiefs
With the two-year-long tension at the border in Ladakh due to continuing stand-offs between the troops of India and China, India’s top commanders of the three Services began a brainstorming conference on Tuesday. The three-day meet in Lucknow will focus on operational readiness and measures to be taken to plug any gaps. Defence experts term this top commanders’ meet as a brainstorming and strategy planning.
Army chief General M M Naravane will preside over the deliberations on Wednesday at the Central Command Headquarters in Lucknow. The deliberations will cover wide-ranging subjects concerning military preparedness, planning, and logistics. The Army chief is scheduled to review the deployment of the Indian army formations deployed on Western and Northern borders while they are transitioning from winter to summer posture.
Senior Army, Navy, and IAF officers including the commanders of their respective commands are attending a series of discussions focused on reviewing the current international and regional environment, said, officials. The exercise is undertaken with a view to progressively increasing own capabilities through force level optimization, technology adoption, induction of force multipliers, modernization, and improvement of infrastructure. Operational readiness of troops and equipment to match strategy and tactics are also being reviewed to respond to the emerging threats and challenges.
Incidentally, the high-profile conference comes days after Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi held talks with his Indian counterpart S Jaishankar here. It was the first visit by a Chinese minister to India since trouble erupted at the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in Eastern Ladakh nearly two years ago at Galwan Valley.
