- Story Text:Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday (July 3) met with soldiers who were injured during the violent clashes with Chinese troops at a disputed Himalayan border site last month.
India and China have traded blame for triggering the high-altitude brawl in the Galwan Valley on June 15, in which 20 Indian soldiers were killed and at least 76 were injured.
"Our country has never bowed down and will never bow down to any world power," Modi told soldiers in the Himalayan desert of Ladakh.
China has not disclosed how many casualties its troops suffered.
The nuclear-armed neighbors have amassed troops along the border, most of which remains disputed, and military and diplomatic talks are going on to de-escalate the confrontation.
