Army Chief comments on China, Nepal & Pak Border situation, assures everything under control

The Indian Army Chief General MM Naravane assured today that the entire situation along borders with China is under control. He also spoke about India-Nepal relations, as the situation got worse when recently Nepal police shot Indian nationals at the border.

"I would like to assure everyone that entire situation along our borders with China is under control. We're having a series of talks which started with Corps Commander level talks&has been followed up with meetings at local level b/w Commanders of equivalent ranks," said Naravane.

Naravane further added that a lot of disengagement has taken place and we are hopeful that through the continued dialogue we're having, all perceived differences that we (India and China) have will be set to rest. Everything is under control.

Yesterday, tension rises on the India-Nepal border when Nepal Police shot dead an Indian & injured two others in an open fire at the border. The incidence happened just two days after Nepal's parliament passed a bill claiming several Indian Territory spots as theirs. Last week, Nepal launched the new official map, which depicts Kalapani, Limpiyadhura, and Lipulekh as part of its territory.



In reply to the Nepalese action, India’s External Affairs Ministry (MEA) spokesperson Anurag Srivastava had hit out at Nepal’s claims, saying, “Such artificial enlargement of territorial claims will not be accepted by India.” He also urged the Nepali leadership for a dialogue over the issue.

However, after the firing reports from across Nepal Border on social media some users termed the firing was provoked as per instructions from China. None of the sources clarified and signaled any such report.A user wrote that "Nepal has turned against India & reports are coming that Nepal Army is firing across the border".

On Situation with Pak Border-

Most of the operations have been based on information provided by the locals themselves which goes to show that they are also absolutely fed up with militancy & terrorism and they want that the situation should return to normal. As far as J&K is concerned and our western neighbour, we have had a lot of successes. In last 10-15 days alone more than 15 terrorists have been killed. All of this has been because of very close cooperation & coordination between all security forces operating in J&K, said Indian Army Chief Naravane
