Jammu: A top Army Commander today said he
sees no threat from China and there is no reason for any alarm
as the situation along the Sino-Indian border in Ladakh sector
is calm.

"The situation remains calm (along the Line of Actual
Control in Ladakh sector). There is no threat from China,"
General Officer Commanding-In-Chief, Northern Command, Lt Gen K T Parnaik, said.

"I do not see any reason for alarm," he told reporters
on the sidelines of an Army Day function at Akhnoor, 35-km
from here.

On the occasion, the Northern Command Chief presented 71
awards to Army personnel at the Investiture ceremony.

"What we have on the LAC is transgressions. There are
transgressions which have taken place in 2011, which have
followed the routine pattern of previous years with some minor
changes," Lt Gen Parnaik said.
"The confidence-building measures are in place. Hence,
the situation is very much under control," he said adding Army
and ITBP personnel were carrying out surveillance along the
border.
