New delhi, Sep 1: Prime Minister Manmohan Singh chaired a meeting of the Cabinet Committee on Security to review China"s recent posturing and India"s options of dealing with it on Tuesday, Aug 31.

Defence Minister A K Antony, Home Minister P Chidambaram and External Affairs Minister S M Krishna were among those who attended the meeting.

India"s ambassador to China S Jaishankar briefed the ministers at the meeting that discussed how best to deal with China"s perceived aggressiveness towards issues critical to India"s sovereignty.

The meeting came amid reports that China has deployed about 11,000 troops in the Gilgit-Baltistan region of Jammu Kashmir which has been held by Pakistan.

The 90-minute meeting also discussed the recent denial of a visa to a senior Indian general commanding the northern sector, which includes Jammu Kashmir which is seen here as an attempt by China to question India"s sovereignty over Jammu Kashmir.
