New Delhi (Agencies): Defence Minister AK Antony will review the security situation and infrastructure development projects on the India-China border on his two-day visit of the North-Eastern areas starting from Friday.

"The Defence Minister would be accompanied by Army Chief General V K Singh and Defence Secretary Pradeep Kumar. Besides visiting the military stations, the minister would also take stock of the ongoing infrastructure developments projects in the area," defence ministry officials said here.

Antony expressed ‘serious concerns’ over the modernisation of Chinese military and its ever-increasing defence spending.

"We also must strengthen our capabilities and infrastructure in our area and we are doing it. The government is also modernising armed forces and strengthening infrastructure in border areas," he had said.

Following Chinese missile deployment and increasing military infrastructure along the Indian border, India too has launched programmes to upgrade roads and aviation bases in the North-Eastern states.

After raising two mountain divisions of the Indian army, the Defence Ministry is also looking forward to position frontline Sukhoi-30 MKI fighter aircraft in the area.
