New Delhi: Pakistan and China are conducting joint military exercises near the LoC amidst the standoff between the Indian Army and the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) at the Line of Actual Control (LAC).
This is an alarm bell for India. The Indian Army has been shocked in view of the activity of China and Pakistan Army in this area. Indian Air Force (IAF) fighter aircraft are monitoring the border. After all, why did Pakistan and China choose Tibet for joint military exercises? What are its political and strategic implications?

Apart from China’s PLA Air Force, many fighter aircraft of the Pakistan Air Force (PAF) are participating in this military exercise. India’s trouble has increased due to the activities of two enemies in Tibet, adjacent to the Ladakh border.
Due to this military exercise, the Indian Army and Indian Air Force (IAF) have immediately increased vigil on the LAC with China. At this time special precautions are being taken in the areas adjacent to the border of Ladakh.
Radars, fighter aircraft and AWACS are monitoring the border round the clock. In this exercise, fighter aircraft of China and Pakistan are practicing air-to-air, air-to-ground and air-to-water missiles and destroying targets.
According to international rules, no country during an exercise with another country can fly over an area that is in dispute. During this exercise, from many areas of Tibet which are disputed between India and China, Pakistan is still exercising from there. Its fighter planes are flying at a distance from the Indian airspace.
Pakistan knows that during a war with India without China’s cooperation is necessary. Pakistan cannot compete with India without the help of China. On the other hand, China also knows that without Pakistan it cannot suppress India much.
Therefore, China also sees the opportunity and invites his friend to the disputed area for preparations against India. Earlier in 2019 also the air forces of Pakistan and China have conducted maneuvers in this area. Then Pakistan’s J-17 and China’s J-10 fighter jets took part.
China has a well thought out strategy behind this exercise. Actually, Tibet is considered very important strategically. China has been laying claim to Tibet. The area of Tibet is adjacent to the eastern Ladakh of India.
For the last one year, this entire region has remained the center of dispute between India and China. This is the reason why Pakistan and China have chosen this area for the exercise to provoke India. The trick of Pakistan is that by showing its presence in the east of Kashmir, it is trying to strengthen itself and project China as its friend.
