Yudh Abhyas Makes China Very Angry!

'The joint military exercise between India and the US close to the LAC at the China-India border violates the spirit of the agreement between China and India in 1993 and 1996,' China's foreign ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian told a media briefing in Beijing on Wednesday.

Oh! The Chinese hypocrisy!

Those India-China agreements didn't stop the People's Liberation Army from intruding into Indian territory in Ladakh in April 2020 -- a military standoff in frigid, difficult, conditions that continues to this day, and which caused the deaths of 20 Indian soldiers and an unknown number of PLA troops in the Galwan Valley on the night of June 15/16, 2020.

Glimpses from Yudh Abhyas, the India-US military exercise currently being conducted in Tapovan, Uttarakhand, 100 km away from the Line of Actual Control:

The annual exercise aims to exchange the best military practices, technique, tactics and procedures between the Indian and US armies.

Yudh Abhyas also focuses on humanitarian assistance and disaster relief operations which will help both armies carry out swift and coordinated relief efforts during any natural calamity.
