One day after it was reported that in a violent face-off with the Chinese soldiers, the Indian Army suffered 20 casualities in the Galwan Valley in Ladhak, the Chinese Foreign Ministry said it does not wants to see “more clashes” with India.
Zhao Lijian, Spokesperson of the Chinese Foreign Ministry said, “From the Chinese side, we do not wish to see more clashes,”.
Lijian added, “We are having communication through diplomatic and military channels. The right and wrong of this is very clear… The incident happened on the Chinese side of Line of Actual Control (LAC) and China is not to blame for it,”.
In the briefing, Lijian said that both India and China “agree to resolve this matter through dialogue and consultation and make efforts to ease the situation and safeguard peace and tranquillity in the border area,”.
However, Beijing calimed that the sovereignty is theres over the Galway valley area and accused India of violating the border protocols.
Lijian said, “The sovereignty of the Galwan valley area has always belonged to China. The Indian border troops flip-flopped and seriously violated our border protocols on border-related issues and the consensus of our commander level talks,”.
He went ahead and asked India to “strictly discipline its frontline troops, stop infringing and provocative activity at once and work with China and come back to the right track of resolving the differences through dialogue and talk.”
Today, the Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi, said that the sacrifice of the Indian soldiers will not go in vain. PM Modi stressed that the sovereignty and unity of the country hold the most importance. Prime Minister Modi said that India wants peace but if instigated, is capable of giving a befitting reply.
