NEW DELHI: India’s armed forces are prepared to look at any military option if the extensive talks to restore status quo ante along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) did not yield any positive result, Chief of Defence Staff(CDS) Gen Bipin Rawat has said on the prolonged border standoff with China in eastern Ladakh.
Gen Rawat, who has been part of the top military brass strategising on the India-China border issue, said a “whole of government” approach is being followed to peacefully resolve the row.
The armed forces are always prepared for military actions if all efforts to restore status quo ante along the LAC don’t “fructify,” the CDS said when asked about the over three-month-long border row.
Gen Rawat, who was the Chief of Army Staff from December 2016 to December 2019, said the transgressions take place along the LAC because of varying perceptions about it by the two countries.
