Defence Minister Rajnath Singh has asked Indian Air Force to draw up long term plans and strategies for capability enhancement to counter future threats. Mr. Singh congratulated Indian Air Force for ensuring a timely and befitting response to the sudden developments in Eastern Ladakh. Addressing the biannual IAF Commanders’ Conference in New Delhi today, he appreciated the critical focus of IAF towards reorienting for the future. Referring to changing international geopolitics, the Minister observed that the perceptible shift of focus from Trans-Atlantic to Trans-Pacific has become more obvious in the recent past.

He also stressed on the need to promote Atmanirbharta in defence infrastructure.
