India says China’s Galwan Valley claims ‘untenable, exaggerated’
India warns China against claiming sovereignty of disputed Ladakh area even as both nations try to end border standoff.
India has cautioned China against making “exaggerated and untenable claims” on the sovereignty of the Galwan Valley area even as both nations tried to end a standoff in the high Himalayan region where their armies engaged in a deadly clash.
Twenty Indian troops were killed in the confrontation on Monday night – the deadliest conflict between the nuclear-armed Asian neighbours in 45 years. China has not disclosed whether its forces suffered any casualties.
