Jammu: Ruling out any threat from China,
the Army on Sunday said the situation along the Sino-Indian border
in Ladakh sector was calm and there was no need to worry.

"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
KT Parnaik, said.

"There is no need to worry," 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," he said.

"I do not see any reason for alarm," 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.
