Chief of Defence Staff (CDS) General Bipin Rawat and Army chief General MM Naravane are accompanying Rajnath Singh on the visit. The defence minister visited Stakna forward areas after landing in Ladakh where the soldiers showed him para dropping skills of the armed forces.

Singh tweeted: Leaving for Leh on a two-day visit to Ladakh and Jammu-Kashmir. I shall be visiting the forward areas to review the situation at the borders and also interact with the Armed Forces personnel deployed in the region. Looking forward to it.

The defence minister is on a two-day visit to Ladakh and Jammu and Kashmir. While he is in Ladakh on the first day of his visit today, Singh will go to Jammu and Kashmir on Saturday. Singh’s visit comes at a time when there is military tension between India and China are being cooled down.

Earlier, as EurAsian Times reported, India and China were engaged in whopping, 14-hour intense negotiations over the disengagement process from all flashpoints along the Line of Actual Control (LAC).

Earlier, it was reported that both India and China have agreed to pull back their soldiers but India Today quoting its ‘key sources’ wrote that Chinese are reluctant to pull back from Pangong finger area. According to the report, Beijing has refused to back-off from Finger 4 area in Pangong Tso. As a result, the Indian Army has increased the deployment of tanks along East Ladakh border to ward off any threat from China’s People’s Liberation Army (PLA).

While both India and China had reached an agreement to disengage at Galwan Valley, Hotsprings and Gogra at the fourth round of Corps Commander-level talks, PLA reportedly made it clear that they were not pulling back.
