The killing of 20 Indian soldiers, including a commanding officer, in an Indo-China border clash across three different places of the disputed Galwan Valley has sparked anti-China sentiment in the Indian community. While the Indian Army has claimed casualties on the Chinese side too, China's foreign Ministry has termed the reports about 40 fatalities as "false information".
Both nuclear countries engaged in commander level talks to resolve the issue and have agreed to restore peace and tranquility after accusing each other of violating the Line of Actual Control in the eastern Ladakh region.
