Amidst Doklam standoff, Army Chief to leave for Ladakh
Amidst the Doklam standoff and the incursions by the Chinese at Ladakh, Indian Army Chief General Bipin Rawat will take stock of the situation. General Rawat is leaving for a three-day visit today.
The visit to Ladakh is being called "significant" in the wake of Indian and Chinese troops getting involved in a minor scuffle at Pangong Tso Lake near Leh, earlier this week.
According to reports, during his visit, the Army chief would review the status with the local commanders of the Army and Air Force, also taking stock of military preparations in the Eastern Ladakh region India shares more than 800 km border with China in Eastern Ladakh.Official authorities have repeatedly said such incidents should not have happened as these were not in the interest of either country.
