Beijing for the first time publicly concedes its side suffered casualties in deadly brawl that also killed at least 20 Indian soldiers.

India at the time announced it had lost 20 of its soldiers in the June 2020 fighting in Galwan Valley in the Ladakh region just opposite Tibet.

Beijing at the time acknowledged that the clash had resulted in casualties but did not confirm if any Chinese soldiers had died.

The Chinese soldiers “sacrificed themselves” during the June confrontation in the contested Galwan Valley border area with an unnamed “foreign military”, China’s defence ministry said.

According to India, the de facto border is 3,488 kilometres (2,167 miles) long, while China says it is considerably shorter.
