China 'planned' Galwan clash: US panel report to Congress

Dec 02, 2020 16:08 IST

The Chinese government had planned the clash with Indian troops in Galwan Valley in June, which resulted in the death of 20 Indian soldiers and unspecified Chinese casualties, a US commission has concluded in a new report to Congress. The US-China Economic and Security Review Commission, in the report submitted on December 1, described the nearly eight-month-long India-China standoff along the Line of Actual Control as the 'most severe border crisis in decades'. Referring to Galwan Valley brawl on June 15, the report said, some evidence suggested the Chinese government had planned the incident, potentially including the possibility for fatalities. The report said 'satellite images showed a large Chinese buildup in Galwan, including potentially 1,000 PLA soldiers, the week before the deadly skirmish'.
