Beijing| For the first time, China has formally confessed that its soldiers were killed in the bloody conflict in the Galwan Valley. The People’s Liberation Army of China has for the first time announced the number of its soldiers killed in a bloody conflict in the Galwan Valley. The Chinese military has claimed that 4 of its soldiers were killed in a bloody conflict in the Galvan Valley. However, this figure of China’s confession is quite low, because many agencies around the world, including India, had reported the casualty to be much higher. In June last year, 20 soldiers of India were martyred in the Galwan conflict.
India had also claimed that more than 40 Chinese soldiers were killed in the Galwan conflict. Not only this, recently Russian news agency TASS claimed that at least 45 Chinese soldiers were also killed in the Galwan Valley skirmish on 15 June. Earlier, many reports claimed to disclose the casualty figure. But China had not officially accepted the death of its soldiers.
According to the Chinese Communist Party mouthpiece Global Times, China’s Central Military Commission has recalled and honored the sacrifice of five Chinese soldiers stationed on the Karakoram Mountains.
The Global Times quoted the PLA’s Daily Report as saying that four of its soldiers were killed in the Galwan conflict, while one was killed in a skirmish in Galwan by drifting in the river during the rescue. The report further states that these soldiers gave up their lives while protecting national sovereignty and their land. The Galwan conflict between India and China was the biggest conflict between the neighbours in the last 45 years.
