PRESS TRUST OF INDIA
New Delhi, Jan 15: Army Chief Gen MM Naravane Friday said no one should make any mistake of testing India’s patience even as he asserted that a befitting re-sponse was given to the “con-spiracy”
of unilaterally changing the status quo along the northern frontier. Gen Naravane at the same time said India is committed to re-solve the over eight-month-long military standoff with China through talks. In his address at the Army Day parade in Delhi Cantonment,
Gen Naravane said the sacrifice of the “Galwan heroes” in eastern Ladakh in June last year will not go waste and that the Indian Army will not allow any harm to the country’s sovereignty and se-curity.
“We are committed to resolve disputes through talks and po-litical efforts but no one should make any mistake of testing our patience,” he said in the pres-ence of the country’s top mili-tary brass including Chief of Defence Staff Gen Bipin Rawat, Navy Chief Admiral Karambir Singh and IAF Chief Air Chief Marshal RKS Bhadauria.
