NEW DELHI (PTI): Army Chief General Manoj Pande on Monday highlighted the importance of having synergy in correctly assessing threats, identifying desired military capabilities, formulation of enabling policies and effecting appropriate responses.

"The Army Chief spoke on the importance of synergy to correctly assess threats, articulate vital strategic guidelines and documents, identify the desired military capabilities, formulate enabling policies, achieve the required preparedness metric and effect appropriate responses, congruent to overall national security objectives," said an official statement.

In his remarks, Chief of Defence Staff (CDS) General Anil Chauhan highlighted the pivotal role played by the Indian Armed Forces as part of the 'whole of government' approach towards national security.

"He emphasised that all defence initiatives should be aligned to draw mutual benefits from government schemes like Aatmanirbharta, vibrant border villages, Gati Shakti, national logistics policy to achieve higher defence preparedness," the statement said.

The theme of the seminar was 'Civil Military Integration: The
Way Forward'.

The two-day seminar began with a discussion on the role of military and bureaucracy in adopting 'whole of nation' approach to tackle security challenges.
