Pursuing ‘constructive engagement’ with China: Army

Written by | January 13, 2015 | 0

New Delhi: India is following a policy of “constructive engagement” with China, Army chief General Dalbir Singh today said even as he stressed the need for raising the country’s capabilities and infrastructure on the Northern Front to meet the “large capability gap”.

He said that the raising of the Mountain Strike Corps would significantly enhance India’s capabilities on the Northern Front where the borders with China, he noted, remained “peaceful”.

“As far as other borders are concerned, we are following the policy of constructive engagement (where) China is concerned,” Singh told reporters during his annual media interaction here.

The Army chief said that the confidence-building measures (CBMs) that are in place with China have been very “effective”.

“We are also engaged in army-to-army exchanges which have enhanced mutual understanding over contentious issues,” he added.
