New Delhi, Dec 21: General Zhao Zongqi, seen as the man responsible for the military standoff with India in eastern Ladakh has been moved out from the People’s Liberation Army’s powerful Western Theatre Command. He has been replaced by General Zhang Xudong, who has never served along the Indian border.
This development has sparked hope in India and it is been seen as a development that is not anti-India. General Zhao was the one who had also engineered the 2017 Doklam conflict with India. He has been a hardliner against both India and Bhutan.
