Galwan Valley faceoff to take center stage in today’s India, China Lt General-level talks

Lieutenant General-level talks between India and China which will be held at Moldo on the Chinese side of Chushul in eastern Ladakh will discuss the Galwan face-off and other points of dispute. The media cited army sources as saying: “All issues will be discussed including Galwan and the Fingers area.”

The last time a meeting at this level was held was on June 6, when India and China agreed to pull back troops in attempts to deescalate after weeks of tension and build-up.

Earlier, on June 15, 20 soldiers died and 76 were injured in a deadly clash that broke out over the Chinese refusing to remove a tent as part of what was agreed on June 6. Indian soldiers were assaulted with crude and barbaric weapons used by the Chinese troops, including nail-studded clubs, spiked rods and stones. Sources said 45 Chinese soldiers were killed or injured in the brawl along Galwan River.
