Amid the ongoing standoff at the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in eastern Ladakh, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh made a statement in the Rajya Sabha on the issue of border tensions with China. "In addition, under the so-called Sino-Pakistan 'Boundary Agreement' of 1963, Pakistan illegally ceded 5,180 sq. km. of Indian territory in PoK to China," he added. "Conduct of our armed forces throughout these incidents shows that while they maintained 'Sayyam' in face of provocative actions, they also equally displayed 'Shaurya' when required to protect the territorial integrity of India: Defence Minister in Rajya Sabha on India-China face-off," he said.
