IAF’s Vigilance for G-20 Leaders’ Summit

Simultaneously, the Indian Air Force is taking comprehensive precautions and putting all its assets on high alert in preparation for the G-20 Leaders’ Summit scheduled for September 9 and 10 in Delhi. With global leaders converging in the national capital for the summit, the IAF is leaving no stone unturned in ensuring the safety and security of the event.

One of the key measures involves activating and deploying surface-to-air defense weapon systems, including the formidable Akash missile systems. These systems are strategically positioned to counter any potential aerial threats and safeguard the airspace during the summit.

Furthermore, security agencies have already initiated the activation of their counter-drone systems. These systems are designed to detect and neutralize small drones that might pose a security risk. If necessary, these counter-drone measures can swiftly respond to eliminate any potential threats posed by unauthorized drone activities during the event.

With these comprehensive preparations and exercises, the Indian Air Force is demonstrating its commitment to maintaining the highest standards of security and preparedness, both in border regions and during international events of significance.
