Chief of Defence Staff Gen Bipin Rawat on Wednesday said that China is capable of launching cyber attacks against India. He also noted that there is a capability gap between the two countries when it comes to technology.
General Rawat also also lauded India's leadership for "displayed political will and determination" to uphold vital national interests in the face of "unprovoked assault" on its security and dignity. His remarks were seen as an apparent reference to the border row with China in eastern Ladakh.
Gen Rawat said the "biggest differential" between India and China lies in the field of cyber domain, adding the neighbouring country has been able to invest a lot of funds on new technologies.
