HYDERABAD: The national security environment has become a big challenge due to its complexity and unpredictability, Chief of the Army Staff Gen. Dalbir Singh has said.
Addressing the valedictory session of the Higher Defence Management Course-10 at the College of Defence Management here on Monday, he cautioned: “Internally, our social and ethnic diversity makes us vulnerable. Stoking of fissiparous tendencies can debilitate the nation. Our adversaries can threaten national security even without physically violating national boundaries with the help of non-state actors.”
He also expressed concern over growing cyber and social media threat and cautioned all to be careful. The chief guest highlighted the need to optimise the resources and harness techniques for speedy decision- making. He assured that infrastructure development and modernisation of the armed forces were being taken care of.
Gen. Singh presented trophies and book prizes to the participants.
