The United States Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has extended his condolences to the people of India for the Indian Army soldiers who dies in the recent face-off with the Chinese PLA in the Galwan Valley region of Ladakh.

In a tweet, Secretary Pompeo said, “We extend our deepest condolences to the people of India for the lives lost as a result of the recent confrontation with China. We will remember the soldiers’ families, loved ones, and communities as they grieve.”

Several leaders in the US have spoken out against China’s posturing along the Line of Actual Control.

Seventy-six soldiers of the army, who were injured during the clash with Chinese troops, are at various hospitals, army officials have told NDTV. None of them are critical at the moment and all of them should be able to get back on duty, the officials said.

Of the injured soldiers, 18 are at the hospital in Leh who are expected at their posts within 15 days. The remaining 56 are spread across other hospitals, who can join work in a week, the officials said.

The violent face-off on Monday evening started after Indian troops, led by Colonel BK Santosh Babu, tried to remove a tent belonging to Chinese troops from Indian territory.
