After nearly a dozen talks with China, public relations in India-China relations has decreased slightly, but perhaps the frozen ice has not started melting in Ladakh. Union Defense Minister Rajnath Singh has once again reiterated that India does not want war under any circumstances but will not compromise on the country’s self-respect and security. He said clearly – India has always walked on the path of peace and will continue to go ’till a limit’.
This statement by the Union Defense Minister is significant because a few days ago there were reports that a phased withdrawal of the army has been agreed on both sides. But since then there is silence. Speaking on the country’s security system at a function, Defense Minister Rajnath Singh said – ‘The northern border is very important in terms of security and India has ideological differences with China. Efforts are on to resolve the issue through negotiations.
We do not want war in any condition, that is, under any circumstances, but there will be no compromise with respect for the country’s pride and honor. There has been a message from India earlier that India is ready for any situation. Speaking of ‘one border’, Rajnath made it more clear that the soldiers of India do not get distracted but everyone should avoid the provocation.
Rajnath said that the security of the border includes not only on the ground border but also seven thousand kilometers of coastline and 21 lakh square kilometers of economic zone. India has strengthened its position in every field. Rajnath said that western sector is also important like Northern sector. Since independence, the country has been battling infiltration and terrorism crisis along the border with Pakistan. Ceasefire violates the day Pakistan arrives.
The 2008 Mumbai attacks, the 2017 Uri attacks, and the 2019 Pulwama terror attack had overshadowed Pakistan’s conspiracy. But now India has made an effective strategy against terrorism. Now, we can take action against terrorism by going across the border if necessary. Rajnath said that Pakistan’s exploits continue. But now we do not just take action in response but go ahead and complete our work.
