India's top military brass will extensively deliberate on external security challenges as well as a geopolitical power play in the region at a two-day conference beginning here tomorrow.

The Unified Commanders’ Conference (UCC), an annual forum to take stock of the country's security preparedness, is expected to undertake a comprehensive review of counter-terror operations in Jammu and Kashmir, the situation along the border with China and developments in India's maritime neighborhood, military officials said.

The conference will be attended by Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, National Security Advisor Ajit Doval, chiefs of the Army, Navy and Air Force and other senior military commanders and officials of the Defence Ministry and tri-services organizations, they said.

"The annual conference provides a platform for discussions at the apex level on all ‘Joint Issues’ amongst the three services and Ministry of Defence. It enables the stock taking of the previous year and planning the way ahead for the next year," the Defence Ministry said.
