"We need to shift our focus to the northern border where infrastructure development has to be accelerated".

"Yes we should try that it [the tension with China] is not escalated", Rawat told reporters in New Delhi ahead of Army Day on January 15.

India can not allow its neighbours to drift away to China, the army chief said, adding that countries like Nepal, Bhutan, Myanmar, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Afghanistan have to be kept on board as part of a broader strategy to deal with China.

The Army chief said India will not allow its territory to be invaded by anyone, asserting that China may be a powerful country but India is not a weak nation either.


The Army chief said that the forces need to update weapons and technology from time to time.

Addressing a workshop on CBRN Technologies organized by Defence Research Development Organisation, DRDO in New Delhi today, Mr Rawat expressed confidence that DRDO's long term perspective plan and integrated perspective plan of the services must envision development of technologies against such CBRN threats. He further added that while Chinese troops have maintained their presence in Doklam, their numbers have thinned and the level of activity has gone down.

Asked about the Tuting road construction incident in which a Chinese team entered nearly 800 mt inside the Indian territory in Arunachal Pradesh, he said the intrusion appeared to be a case of a mistaken alignment (of a road) that was sorted out. On being asked about the direct support of China to some terror outfits, he said, "As of now, we have not seen any direct support to terrorists from the Chinese. Troops are earmarked, and should a situation arise, our troops are ready to cater", he added. "Most misguided youth come from schools where they are being radicalised".

General Rawat also addressed the issue of terrorism emanating from Pakistan. It shows that we are better prepared: "Army Chief General Bipin Rawat on stylised bulletproof helmets", Rawat said at a press conference here.
