Suitable action against China's incursion: IAF
New Delhi, Jan 12: A day after reports on China grabbing excessive land along the Line of Actual Control (LAC), IAF chief Air Chief Marshal P V Naik on Tuesday, Jan 12 said that India will take suitable action.

Citing ignorance about the authenticity of the report, Naik said that India will act once the truth was established.

"When it is established on the ground, then we will take suitable action. It (incursions) has got nothing to do with the Air Force though," Naik said.

However, Naik said that violation of air space has not increased.

"On the air space violations front it has not increased. On the land, you got to ask the Army chief about it," he said.

Commenting on the security concern in Jammu Kashmir, the IAF chief said that militant attacks in the border state which has been going on for the last 10 to 12 years was not unusual.

"But last year, the number of attacks have come down and it will continue to come down," he added.

 Naik said that it is for the political leaders to decide whether to reduce or increase troops in Kashmir to maintain stability in the region.

"It depends whether it will be stable by reducing the number of troops or by increasing the number of troops in Jammu and Kashmir. Let our political masters decide. They are the best judges of this," he said.

He added that the army chief will be consulted in case they decide to withdraw troops.

"Do not worry, there is no danger to the country," he said.
