Ladakh: The Indian army chief General Manoj Pande on Saturday said that situation in Ladakh near the Line of Actual Control (LAC) is stable but cannot be predicted.

“Situation is stable but unpredictable,” news agency Press Trust of India tweeted quoting army chief Gen Manoj Pande.

Pande also said the Indian side is looking forward to the next round of high-level military talks with China for the resolution of the remaining issues.

”We are looking at a date for the 17th round of talks,” he said.

As far as PLA’s force levels are concerned, there has been no significant reduction, he said referring to the overall situation along the Line of Actual Control in eastern Ladakh.

On the development of infrastructure by China in border areas, the Army chief said it is going on unabated.

About the Indian Army’s military preparedness in the region, he said ”our transition to winter posture is underway”.

Gen Pande also said that there is a need to very carefully calibrate ”our actions on LAC to be able to safeguard our interests and sensitivities”.
