The brief statement of the Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian came a day after the Indian Army
said that all Indian soldiers involved in the clashes with the Chinese army
at the Galwan Valley in eastern Ladakh on Monday night have been accounted for.
“As far as I know, China presently has not detained any Indian personnel,” Zhao told a media briefing while answering questions on the tense standoff between the Indian and Chinese troops at the Galwan Valley. Asked if there are any Chinese soldiers detained by India, he said: “China and India are (engaged) in a dialogue to resolve the matter on ground through diplomatic and military channels. I don't have any information for you at the moment”.
