"India's desire for peace is borne out of its inherent strength and it should not be mistaken otherwise," said Naravane.

"Our response to such attempts has been swift, calibrated and decisive, as was seen when the situation so demanded. We have also instituted additional safeguards to prevent any further attempts," he added.

He said the Indian Army has resolutely executed its responsibility and was steadfast in safeguarding the security and territorial integrity of the nation during the past one year.

"Our active borders were guarded with resolve and resilience. Our brave JCOs, officers and soldiers have faced adversaries and adversity with courage and fortitude, even to the extent of laying down their lives in the highest traditions of the Indian Army," he said, while saluting the bravehearts, who made supreme sacrifice in the line of duty.

The Army Chief also highlighted the sacrifices made by the veer naris and their families.
