The Defence Minister urged the House to pass a resolution in support of the Armed forces, who he said, have been defending our motherland at great heights and most inclement weather conditions. He said, China continues to be in illegal occupation of approximately 38,000 sq. kms in Ladakh.

The Defence Minister said, India had situations of prolonged stand-offs in border areas with China in the past as well, which he said, were resolved peacefully.  Mr Singh said, even though the situation this year is very different both in terms of the scale of troops involved and the number of friction points, India remains committed to peaceful resolution. He said, violent conduct of Chinese troops along the LAC is a violation of all past agreements.


The Defence Minister said though China has mobilised a huge number of Army battalions and armaments along the LAC, the Indian Army is ready to deal with any situation along border.

India has said the Pakistani NSA deliberately projected a fictitious map that Pakistan has recently been propagating at the meeting of the National Security Advisers of member states of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO). In response to questions on today’s meeting of NSAs of SCO member states, External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Anurag Srivastava said this was in blatant disregard to the advisory by the host Russia against it and in violation of the norms of the meeting. He said, the Indian side left the meeting in protest at that juncture after consultation with the host. Mr Srivastava said, as was to be expected, Pakistan then went on to present a misleading view of this meeting.


Government sources said, Pakistan’s use of a fictitious map as a backdrop for its representative depicting sovereign Indian territories as part of Pakistan is a blatant violation of the SCO Charter and against all its established norms of safeguarding the sovereignty and territorial integrity of SCO Member States. Sources said, India issued its strong objection to the use of this illegal map by Pakistan. The Russian side, as the Chair, tried very hard to persuade Pakistan not to do so.
