AGARTALA, Feb 7 � India is working on upgrading its defence infrastructure along its border with China in the northeastern region, Defence Secretary RK Mathur said today, reports PTI.
�We have to make developments there (north-eastern border with China). Our infrastructure has to improve, our war preparedness has to improve. We are working on that,� Mathur said here.
�We are not doing any defence deal with China, but a deal has to be on border management,� he said, adding, border disputes would be discussed during Prime Minister Narendra Modi�s visit to China in May.
The Defence Secretary said India is procuring some unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) from Israel and that country�s Defence Minister would visit India this month. Moshe Ya�alon�s trip will be the first India visit of any Defence Minister from Israel.
He said India is increasing its defence exchange programme with neighbouring Bangladesh and the USA.
