Indian Rafale fly over the border area with China

Despite the agreements between Beijing and New Delhi signed on September 14 in order to reduce tension in the Himalayan region of Ladakh , there has been no indication until now that the forces present have, in any way whatsoever, reduced their measures. or their operational postures. On the contrary ! To respond to the latest Chinese public statements, the Indian Air Force has decided to stage its latest acquisition, the Rafale which, arrived in the country less than 2 months ago , has already started flights above of this potentially explosive theater.

The speeches which framed the signing of agreements to reduce tensions in the Himalayan zone of Ladakh will therefore not have had any notable effects beyond a few days. If the forces deployed on both sides of the demarcation line have indeed carried out less aggressive redeployments, on a regional scale, the military reinforcement continues, both for India and for China. And as until now, public declarations, postures and official communications still play a preponderant role in the quiet confrontation taking place on the roof of the world.
