Defence Minister Rajnath Singh has called for proactive synergy among the Armed Forces in future military strategies and responses to safeguard the interests of the nation.
He was addressing the graduates of 59th National Defence College during their convocation ceremony in New Delhi today.
Mr Singh said, the bold approach of the Government on issues like border disputes and cross-border terrorism has made India stronger in the recent past and it has now assumed a greater global role and responsibility.
He reiterated that India is a peace-loving nation, but will give a befitting reply to anyone who threatens its integrity and sovereignty.
The Minister said, threats to internal and external security will no longer be tolerated.
He said, India’s actions in Balakot and Galwan are clear signals to all aggressors.
Sharing his views on the situation in Afghanistan, Mr Singh said the developments have highlighted the reality of our times.
The Minister emphasised on the need to draw lessons from the situation in Afghanistan, far beyond the immediate reverberations being felt in the region and beyond.
