In a four-day conference commencing from Monday, the top commander of the army will make a comprehensive assessment of India’s combat preparedness in eastern Ladakh as well as other sensitive areas along the Line of Actual Control with China.

All military commanders, Principal Staff Officers (PSOs) and other senior officers of military headquarters are participating in this.
