Reuters: Indian and Chinese military commanders held a second round of talks to ease tensions at their contested border on Monday, as the public mood hardened in India for a riposte to China following the worst clash in over 5 decades.
Reuters: An Indian government source said corps commanders from both sides met in Moldo, on the Chinese side of the Line of Actual Control, the de facto border dividing India's Ladakh region from the Chinese held Aksai Chin, high in the western Himalayas.
Reuters: Under long observed protocols, both militaries refrain from firing weapons, and the last time there was a deadly clash on the disputed border was in 1967.
Reuters: The Indian foreign ministry has, however, described the fighting that left 20 Indian soldiers dead and at least 76 injured as a "pre-meditated and planned action" by China.
Reuters: China has accused Indian troops of violating a military agreement, and provoking and attacking its troops in the Galwan valley. China has not disclosed how many casualties it suffered, though an Indian minister has said around 40 Chinese soldiers may have been killed.
