Jammu: Ruling out any threat from China, the Army on Sunday said the situation along the Sino-Indian border in Ladakh sector was calm and there was no need to worry.

"The situation remains calm (along the Line of Actual Control in Ladakh sector). There is no threat from China," General Officer Commanding-In-Chief, Northern Command, Lt Gen K T Parnaik, said.

"There is no need to worry," he told reporters on the sidelines of an Army Day function at Akhnoor, 35-km from here.

On the occasion, the Northern Command Chief presented 71 awards to Army personnel at the Investiture ceremony.

"What we have on the LAC is transgressions. There are transgressions which have taken place in 2011, which have followed the routine pattern of previous years with some minor changes," he said.

"I do not see any reason for alarm," Lt Gen Parnaik said.

"The confidence-building measures are in place. Hence, the situation is very much under control," he said adding Army and ITBP personnel were carrying out surveillance along the border.
