India building defence capabilities like China: Antony

Defence Minister A K Antony today said India was building its defence capabilities just as China did. "Just as what China is doing, we are also trying to strengthen our capabilities," Antony told reporters here on the sidelines of a defence accounts event. In the last few years government was bolstering the infrastructure and capabilities of the three forces. "Earlier we were not doing anything," he added.

Antony said in spite of "occasional troubles", the Sino-Indian border was peaceful and India wanted to resolve its issues with Beijing only through negotiations. "We must try to understand that in spite of occasional troubles here and there, by and large the Indo-China border is peaceful," he said when asked about the increase in Chinese incursions along the Line of Actual Control (LAC).
