- Story Text: India expects China to sincerely follow up and ensure the expeditious restoration of peace and tranquility in the border areas, the foreign ministry said on Thursday (July 02), after a tense standoff between the two sides' militaries last month.
Indian foreign ministry spokesman Anurag Srivastava said both the sides are in discussion, and mutually committed to reduce the tensions along the border.
Last month, 20 Indian soldiers were killed during a clash with Chinese troops at a disputed Himalayan border site.
During the clash in the Galwan Valley on June 15, soldiers from both sides beat each other with rocks and wooden sticks embedded with nails. But both sides have observed a long-held protocol to avoid using firearms on the sensitive, high altitude frontier.
Srivastava also refuted Pakistan's blame on India for the militant attack where four gunmen armed with grenades attacked the Pakistan Stock Exchange on Monday, killing two guards and a policeman before security forces killed the attackers.
