Won't let any attempt to change status quo along India's border to succeed, says Gen Naravane
He said joint efforts at various levels have led to disengagement in many areas which in itself is a constructive step.
Gen Naravane said that on the basis of mutual and equal security, efforts would continue to find a solution to the current situation.
He asserted that the morale of the soldiers deployed on snow-capped mountains for the country's security was sky-high.
''Our patience is a sign of our self-confidence, but no one should make the mistake of testing it,'' Gen Naravane said.
''Our message is clear, the Indian Army won't let any attempt to unilaterally change status quo along country's borders to succeed.'' The armies of India and China are locked in a military standoff in eastern Ladakh since May 5, 2020, after a violent clash erupted in the Pangong lake area. Both countries have conducted 14 rounds of military-level talks to resolve the standoff.
Each side currently has around 50,000 to 60,000 troops along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in the sensitive sector.
Gen Naravane said that the situation on the LoC is better than the previous year but Pakistan still harbouring terrorists.
Nearly 300-400 terrorists in training camps across the border are waiting to intrude into India, he said, adding a total of 194 terrorists were killed in counter-operations in the last one year.
