International National

(By THP), Chief of Defence Staff Gen Anil Chauhan on March 16 said Pakistan may be in a kind of economic turmoil but militarily there has been “no denting” in its capabilities and its armed forces “remain a threat for us”.

During an interaction at a conclave in New Delhi, he also said that India has resources to “take care of our borders”, especially disputed borders in the north, very well.

“I think if you look at the armed forces, the biggest challenge would be mostly external (ones). And they are of immediate concern. But then external challenge also unite a nation. We have seen it in Kargil, we have seen it in Galwan,” Gen Chauhan said.

The interaction was on the subject of ‘Vision National Security: The Challenges Before the Indian Military’ during the India Today Conclave 2024.

“As far as the armed forces are concerned, our immediate challenge is the rise of China and the unsettled boundary problem. We have two neighbours, both adversarial to us. Both of them profess that their friendship is higher than the Himalayas and as deep as the oceans. And they are both nuclear capable,” the CDS said.
