Army chief Gen MM Naravane will visit Leh, headquarters of 14 Corps, on Tuesday. He is going for a security review of the sensitive Ladakh sector, where tensions have escalated after a brutal clash between soldiers of the Indian Army and China’s People’s Liberation Army (PLA) in Galwan Valley.

Sources said that, “He will leave for Leh after attending a meeting with top generals who are in New Delhi for the army commanders conference that ends on Tuesday”.

The commanders discussed developments along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) and the army’s readiness to handle any situation, on Monday.

Senior officers will brief Naravane on latest developments along the LAC and progress in military dialogue with China, in Leh.  According to the sources, Naravane will also interact with soldiers there.

This will be Naravane’s second visit to Ladakh sector after the border standoff began in early May. He earlier visited Leh on May 22. The army chief is expected to visit Kashmir on Wednesday.

The current situation along the LAC marks the first major flare-up since the 73-day standoff between India and China at Doklam near the Sikkim border in 2017.

Naravane is visiting Leh a day after top military commanders from the two sides held a marathon meeting at Moldo on the Chinese side of the LAC with a focus on cooling tensions and thinning the build-up on both sides of the border.
