India must move out of threat of sanctions to meet its military requirements: CDS Rawat

Chief of Defence Staff General Bipin Rawat on November 06 said that India must move out of the constant threat of sanctions or dependency on individual nations for country's military requirements. "As India grows in stature, security challenges will rise proportionately. We must move out of the constant threat of sanctions or dependency on individual nations for our military requirements and invest in building long-term indigenous capability for strategic independence and application of decisive military power to squarely meet present and emerging challenges," said Rawat.
