India Open to Use Military Option if talks fail: Bipin Rawat

Vastavam web: Chief of Defence Staff Bipin Rawat stated that India has “military options” to deal with the Chinese on the issue of transgressions if talks between both the countries at the military and diplomatic level don’t yield any results. “The military option to deal with transgressions by the Chinese Army in Ladakh are on but it will be exercised only if talks at the military and the diplomatic level fail,” Rawat said here on the ongoing dispute between India and China in Eastern Ladakh. The talks between the two sides have been going on for the last three months including five Lieutenant General-level talks but have failed to yield any results, so far. The CDS, however, refused to discuss in detail the military options that India could exercise to push back the transgressions by the Chinese Army in Ladakh sector.
