‘Yudh Abhyas’: India, US conduct military exercises near LAC in Uttarakhand amid rising tensions with China

New Delhi, August 3: Amid mounting tensions with China, India and the United States will hold two weeks of high-altitude military exercises in Auli, Uttarakhand, less than 100 kilometers from the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in the Central Region.

The joint India-US exercise, known as “Yud Abiyas,” is now in its 15th year. Joint exercises are planned for Oct. 14-31, with the two armies conducting “full-range operations” for high-altitude warfare, according to defense and security agency sources. Sources say the location where the exercises will take place (at an altitude of 10,000 feet) is Phase 1 of the altitude adaptation.

“This time, it is a very important exercise because the Indian side will showcase its high altitude warfare strategy and the United States will demonstrate many of the technologies that can be used in such a scenario. It is planned, both sides can unite in any scenario,” a source said. India, US are close enough to sort out differences through quiet diplomacy: experts.

According to another source, various activities are planned for both sides to make the most of the two-week military exercises and see how the armed forces can work together.

India and China have seen tensions rise along the LAC over the past two years after a standoff in Ladakh. Meanwhile, tensions rose between the United States and China over House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan on Tuesday.
