New Delhi: Defence minister Rajnath Singh and army chief M.M. Naravane will visit Ladakh on Friday to review the security situation in the region.
“During his visit the defence minister will take stock of the tense situation as the border standoff continues in eastern Ladakh amid Chinese aggression. He will hold meetings with the top military leadership of the northern command and also soldiers deployed in forward areas in Ladakh along the LAC,” reports said.
To be accompanied by Chief of Army Staff Gen M M Naravane, it will be the defence minister’s first visit to Ladakh after the standoff between the two armies began on May 5.
This will be the first visit by the top political leadership since the tensions between India and China escalated in early May.
