From UPSC perspective, the following things are important :

Prelims level : Exercise Yudh Abhyas

Mains level : Not Much

China expressed concern over the India-US joint military exercise Yudh Abhyas being held in Uttarakhand, about 100 km from the LAC.

Exercise Yudh Abhyas

  • Exercise Yudh Abhyas is the largest running joint military training and defence cooperation endeavour between India and the US.
  • The exercise aims at enhancing understanding, cooperation and interoperability between the two armies.
  • Interestingly, this is the only India-US service exercise continuing in bilateral format.

Why in news?

  • The disengagement of troops is still under process after several rounds of talks between India and China.
  • Since beginning in May 2020, Chinese and Indian forces faced off in clashes with rocks, batons, and clubs wrapped in barbed wire at multiple locations along the LAC.
  • Differing perceptions of border demarcations along the LAC is the reason behind.
  • Each country seeks the withdrawal of the other’s forces and a return to the pre-stand-off conditions, but neither China nor India agreed to the conditions.
