Army chief Gen MM Naravane will be visiting Leh for a security review of the sensitive Ladakh sector. Tensions have escalated in the border after the clash between the Indian Army and China’s People’s Liberation Army (PLA) in Galwan Valley.

The commanders discussed developments along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) and the army’s readiness to handle any situation on Monday. In Leh, Naravane will meet with senior officers and soldiers to brief them on the latest developments along the LAC.

India is demanding the withdrawal of Chinese troops as well as the removal of bunkers, pillboxes, and observation posts from the Finger Area.
