New Delhi (Web Desk): Newly-appointed Indian Army chief Gen Bipin Rawat has said that his force is prepared for a two-front war involving Pakistan and China simultaneously but emphasised on the need to look at cooperation and not confrontation with Beijing.

Rawat, in an interview with news channel News X, said Indian Army is prepared for a two-front war involving Pakistan and China simultaneously but emphasised on the need to look at cooperation and not confrontation with Beijing.

 “The fact that terrorists infiltrating from adversary’s side means that they are getting support from them (Pakistani forces),” the army chief said in a conversation with Times Now. “We also have to think ahead, and ball has already been rolling in that direction,” he added.

“As far as armed forces are concerned, we are tasked to be prepared for a two-front war and I think we are capable of carrying out our task in whatever manner that we may be asked to do by the political hierarchy,” Gen Rawat said and added, “We want peace at borders because civilians lose the most.”
