Blaming New Delhi for the face-off in Galwan valley in Eastern Ladakh last week, which left 20 Indian soldiers and unspecified Chinese soldiers dead, China on Monday said that the violent clash was initiated by India.
The vicious hand-to-hand brawl took place on June 15.
Quoting a statement from Beijing the Hindustan Times reported, “The rights and wrongs of this incident are very clear.
The Chinese foreign m ministry also refused to divulge details of the ongoing talks between the militaries of both sides.
“China and India are in communication with each other to resolve the situation on the ground through diplomatic and military channels. I have no information to release on that,” Hindustan Times reported quoting Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian.
The Chinse foreign ministry spokesperson’s statement came in response to a query by Indian MoS for roads VK Singh.
Singh, on Sunday, claimed that the fatality of the Chinese soldiers was more and almost double in comparison to the fatality of Indian soldiers.
The Chinese government, however, has refused to divulge the PLA’s casualty figures.
