ir Chief Marshal R K S Bhadauria said Tuesday that the Chinese have “fully deployed” their air assets to support troops along the Line of Actual Control in Ladakh.
The IAF chief, speaking at an event organised by the Vivekananda International Foundation, said while the strength of the Chinese army presence in the region is well known, its air force “deployment has been very strong” and “we have taken every action that we are required to take and cater to such situations”.
On the counteraction from the Indian side, the IAF chief emphasised, “We have taken all actions required to be taken.”
“Their deployment has been very strong. We have taken every action that we were required to take and cater to such situation and be sure that we will handle it,” Bhadauria was quoted as saying.
The Air Chief said any serious India-China conflict is not good for China on the global front.
“If Chinese aspirations are global then it does not suit their grand plan. What could be the possible Chinese objectives for their action in the north? It is important that we recognise what they have really achieved,” he added.
