India will take every step to protect its interests: Antony

Defence minister A K Antony on Monday said India will take every step to protect its interests at the borders.

The defence minister was responding to reports of incursions by Chinese troops in eastern Ladakh.

‘We are taking every action to protect our interest. ... We will take every step to protect our interest,’ he told reporters outside Parliament.

Several dozen Chinese soldiers have set up a remote camp some 10 km inside Indian territory in the high altitude Himalayan desert of Ladakh.

We are addressing the Chinese incursion matter in an appropriate manner, external affairs minister Salman Khurshid told reporters when asked for his reaction.

In this deep incursion into Indian territory, Chinese troops apparently made inroads into the Daulat Beg Oldi (DBO) sector of eastern Ladakh and erected a tented post there last week. Government sources have already said that India and China are in touch to resolve the issue.
