Terming bilateral relations between India and China as "absolutely perfect", Chief of Army Staff General Bikram Singh said that mechanisms were in place to solve any issues between the two countries.
"We have peace and tranquillity on the border and at the line of control," Singh said, speaking on the sidelines of the passing-out parade at the Indian Naval Academy here on Saturday.
In the wake of leadership changes in China, Singh said that the "bilateral relations between the two countries (India and China) were absolutely perfect". Pointing out that there was no need to withdraw Indian forces from Siachen, he said, "the country's armed forces are strategically positioned at an advantageous situation in the Siachen". He added that it was up to the government to decide on a pullout.
Singh reviewed the passing-out parade of cadets of 15th Naval Orientation (regular) Course. He said steps were being taken to attract more youths to the Army. As many as 219 cadets passed out after 22 weeks of training.
