All seven Army commanders have been called to Delhi this week for an important meeting over the security situation along the China border. This is also the first meeting of all the commanders after the death of Chief of Defence Staff (CDS) Gen Bipin Rawat on December 8

During the commanders’ conference, the security situation along the borders with China would be discussed, top government sources told India Today TV.

This would be the first meeting of the commanders after the death of Chief of Defence Staff, Gen Bipin Rawat, in a chopper crash on December 8, along with his wife and 12 other personnel.

The Army commanders would be briefed on the situation along the China border, including the activities of the People’s Liberation Army, in the eastern sector. India and China have been in a military stand-off since April-May last year after the Chinese showed unilateral aggression.

India responded very aggressively to Chinese aggression and checked their actions at multiple locations. The Galwan clash also took place where both sides had suffered casualties.

India has been working towards establishing peace in the area but has also maintained a high-level of preparedness to thwart any misadventure by enemy troops. Both sides have deployed a large number of troops, along with heavy weaponry, in the area.
