The External Affairs Ministry spokesperson, Anurag Srivastava, came forward to address the media and stated that China’s PLA hasn’t obliged to its promise to respect the LAC and has again tried to cross the border to barge into the Indian soil. “While it was our expectations that it would unfold smoothly, the Chinese side departed from the consensus to respect the LAC in the Galwan Valley. On the late evening and night of June 15, 2020 a violent face-off happened as a result of an attempt by the Chinese side to unilaterally change the status quo there. Both sides suffered casualties that could have been avoided had the agreement at the higher level been scrupulously followed by the Chinese side,” stated Srivastava on the Indo-China border face-off.

The China’s PLA later repudiated to share the real number of casualties suffered by PLA in order to de-escalate any tension arising due to number comparison. In a tweet by Wang Wenwen of Global Times, she wrote, “From our editorial: It is noteworthy that the Chinese side did not disclose the number of casualties of the Chinese military, a move that aims to avoid comparing and preventing confrontational sentiments from escalating.,”

The talks are still on to disengage both the sides of India and China from any more face-off. However, India has cleared it’s stance in the matter that it will not compromise with its territorial map at any cost. This is the first after 1975 where such high casualties are reported at LAC due to violent clashes between PLA and Indian troops.
