India-China Tensions

Border tensions between India and China that flared in early May took a more violent turn late Monday when troops clashed in the Galwan Valley in Eastern Ladakh and India lost 20 soldiers, including a commanding officer. There were casualties on the other side too, the Indian Army said after the first violent clash with China in 45 years.

The tensions at the Line of Actual Control have been making headlines for more than a month now despite the coronavirus crisis dominating the news cycle.

India has said it is committed to ensuring the country's sovereignty and territorial integrity, even as it accused China of “departing” from the consensus reached earlier to resolve the border standoff.
