India, China air forces likely to set up direct link | India News

NEW DELHI: India and China are likely to establish “direct contact” between their air forces to prevent any inadvertent escalation amid the ongoing “heightened” activity by fighter jets and drones along the unresolved Line of Actual Control (LAC).
The direct contact mechanism could be through a separate hotline between the Indian Air Force (IAF) and the People’s Liberation Army-Air Force (PLAAF) or by using the existing hotline between the two armies in the eastern Ladakh region, defence establishment sources said on Tuesday.
The “proposal” was discussed during the special military dialogue between the two countries at the Chushul-Moldo border meeting point last week, during which India raised the recent airspace violations and breach of confidence-building measures (CBMs) by the Chinese air force in eastern Ladakh.
