On Pakistan resorting to terrorism, Narvane said that India has sent a clear message of zero-tolerance towards terrorist activities.

“Pakistan continues to embrace terrorism. We have zero-tolerance for terror. We reserve our right to respond at a time and place of our own choosing and with precision,” said Narvane.

Without mixing words, the Army chief said that India cannot wish away collusion among threat countries.

“Pakistan and China together form a potent threat and the threat of collusivity cannot be wished away,” he said, adding, that the Army keeps modifying its preparedness based on geopolitical developments.
Reflecting on the year gone by, Narvane said that the last year was full of challenges.
