No face-off recent between Indian & Chinese at Galwan, Army refutes report

The Indian Army on Sunday refuted a report which claimed that a minor face-off took place between Indian and Chinese troops in Galwan Valley in Eastern Ladakh in the month of May. Refuting the said report, the Army clarified that no such incident happened at the site, where both the troops were locked in a skirmish last year.  "A media report suggested a minor face-off between Indian & Chinese troops in Galwan Valley. It is clarified that no such face-off has taken place between Indian and Chinese troops at Galwan Valley in Eastern Ladakh in the first week of May 2021 as reported," the Indian Army said.  "The article published in The Hindu on 23 May seems to be inspired by sources who may be trying to derail the ongoing process for early resolution of issues in Eastern Ladakh," it added.  Media professionals are requested to clarify actual versions/positions on incidents involving the Indian Army from authorised sources in the Indian Army and not base reports on un-corroborated inputs from third parties.
