Bangalore, Feb 2: Defence Minister A K Antony on Tuesday, Feb 2, said India is strengthening security set up in Arunachal Pradesh to increase deterrent capacity.
Speaking to reporters, Antony said, "We are strengthening our security set up in all areas including Arunachal Pradesh because it is integral part of India."
The Defence Minister said, "India was strengthening the security apparatus not to confront anybody and our considered policy is to be friendly with all our neighbours."
"Indian armed forces were always ready to meet any eventuality or threat from any quarters," he added.
China has repeatedly raked up its claim over Arunachal Pradesh and even objected to visits of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama.
