The government would take all measures to protect the territorial integrity of the country and there would be no compromise on maintaining national security, Defence Minister A.K. Antony asserted here on Wednesday.

He was talking to reporters after releasing the Congress manifesto for the Assembly elections in Karnataka.

The government was engaged in negotiations in New Delhi and a solution to the Chinese incursion across the Line of Actual Control would be found.

The Minister first refused to speak on the issue, saying he had come to release the manifesto and wanted to focus on it. He advised reporters not to ask more questions.
