Manoj Pandey said- We insist on peaceful solution
Addressing a conference, General Pandey also said that India always emphasizes on a peaceful solution for the Indo-Pacific. We insist on refraining from the use of force and adhering to international laws.
The Army Chief said, despite so many efforts, we are seeing interstate disputes and competition between countries to outdo each other. The challenges we face transcend borders and our response to them must include them.
Defense Minister said – Neighborhood First is our culture
Defense Minister Rajnath Singh, who came to participate in the conference, said, ‘Neighbourhood First’ has been the cornerstone of our culture since ancient times. India’s approach to the region is defined by its ‘Act East Policy’.
India’s efforts towards building strong military partnerships with friendly countries reflect our commitment not only to safeguard our own national interests but also to address the critical global challenges facing all of us.
What did the army chiefs of other countries who came to participate in the conference say?
US Army Chief of Staff General Randy George said at the Indo Pacific Chiefs of Staff Conference, “We all know that the way of war is changing and we talk about how to strengthen our profession.”
Canadian Deputy Army Chief Major General Peter Scott, who came to participate in this conference, also spoke on Trudeau’s statement. He said, I am aware of the statement of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. The government’s stance, the request to cooperate and participate in the investigation with India but that issue actually did not have an impact on us here at the Indo-Pacific Conference. In true sense, we are here to build military to military relationship and we will let our respective governments (India-Canada) deal with that issue themselves.
