A hotline will be set up between the Indian and Chinese armies very soon, Army Chief General Bipin Rawat said Friday. Pakistan is sending messages regularly to return to ceasefire.

Terrorists are a disposable commodity in Pakistan and the Indian Army's approach has been to ensure that it feels the pain, he said.

Signalling a fundamental shift in the thinking among strategists in India, Gen Rawat said that India has for too long concentrated on the "western borders [Pakistan].we need to look at the northern borders [China] and next generation warfare". "If given the task, we will not say we can not cross the border because they have nuclear weapons", he said.

On a separate note General Rawat said that eliminating terrorists in Jammu and Kashmir won't hurt Pakistan. "Troops are earmarked, should a situation arise our troops are ready to cater", Chief of Army Staff General Bipin Rawat was quoted by news agency ANI as saying.

Doklam - a tract of land simultaneously claimed by Bhutan and China - was the site of a bitter stand-off between Indian and Chinese troops past year.

Bannon to testify before House committee next week, source says
Last July I wrote a letter to The Press criticizing Trump, Jeff Sessions and, most especially, Steve Bannon . Reuters reports Bannon will sit down on Capital Hill on Tuesday.

On combating terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir, the Army Chief asserted that "We may have neutralised several terrorists but we have also caught 39 of them alive because we wanted to give them a second chance".

He highlighted that post the Doklam incident, the Army has increased patrolling activities in the northern border.

"The time had come for India to shift focus to its northern border".

The stand-off was resolved after Prime Minister Narendra Modi intervened and took up the issue with Chinese President Xi Jinping in Hamburg during the G-20 summit a year ago. "The teachers who teach are also brought up in the same system", he said. "The other issue is of the madrasas and masjids - what is being informed to them (the students) or incorrectly informed to them is through the madrasas and masjids". On December 28, Indian troops foiled attempts by Chinese road building teams to construct a track around 1 km inside the Indian territory in Tuting, government sources had said. "Unlike conventional warfare, CBRN combat requires operating in a highly unpredictable environment, where functioning of man and machine in flawless harmony would be desirable", he said.
