But we do not think that any big war like what is happening in Europe is going to happen here also.
There is a need to be self-sufficient with weapons
Chouhan said, “We need to be self-reliant–this is the biggest lesson for us (from the Ukraine war). We cannot depend on supplies coming from outside (other countries) for our weapons. That’s one of the great lessons we learn from struggle.”
He also said that there was an idea that wars in modern times would be “shorter and faster” but “what we are seeing in Ukraine is one long war”.
In his remarks at the session, General Angus J Campbell, Chief of the Australian Defense Force, criticized Russia for the Ukraine war. “It is an illegal, unjustified and merciless attack and violates the integrity of a sovereign nation,” he said.
