Army was “handling” the situation arising out of the latest incursion in Ladakh, Defence Minister A K Antony said on Monday after Chinese troops prevented Indians from patrolling up to LAC in Finger-VIII area where they have built a road inside Indian territory.

“Army is updated about latest position there. Whenever these kind of incidents happen in the local areas, they are handling it,” he told reporters here and asserted that India can protect its national interests.

The Defence Minister was asked about the recent Chinese incursion in Ladakh where its troops have built a road 5 km inside the Indian territory.

“Indian can protect its national interests. India is not the India of the past,” the Minister said.
