New Delhi: The Chinese Army has retreated by nearly 2 kilometres in the Galwan Valley. Despite this, the Airforce has warned that India is closely monitoring the developments in this border region. A video of the aircraft returning, to the base, after a surveillance sortie has been published. This time, the Airforce has warned that it is ready to face any eventuality, in any conditions.
It has been exposed that the Chinese soldiers have retreated by nearly 2 kilometres. Chinese foreign ministry also has confirmed this report. As performer military officials and diplomats, this is a major victory for India. But the former military officials and diplomats have also warned that despite this, the Chinese withdrawal can be a short-term measure and China will try intrusion again if presented with an opportunity. Therefore, these former officials have demanded that India should not change its stance and maintain the pressure exerted on China on military and other fronts.
Meanwhile, during the period of the standoff with the Chinese military, the Indian military completed building and refurbishing work on three bridges, at strategically important locations. Therefore, the Army will be majorly benefited with this, as it will become easier to reach the defence supplies to remote locations.
Indications are that the government will be prioritising road building in the areas near the Chinese border even, in the coming times. Defence Minister Rajnath Singh held discussions with lieutenant General Harpal Singh, the Chief of Border Road Organisation (BRO). The Chief of BRO informed the Defence Minister about the project to build a road network, reaching the Line of Control with Pakistan and the Line of Actual Control with China, during this discussion, which lasted for nearly an hour.
