Sino-Indian: Troops of the two countries are involved in ‘renewed border clashes’

A fresh clash between the two countries’ armies at Nakula in North Sikkim on the Sino-Indian border was reported five days ago. It is learned that the soldiers of both sides were injured in the clash.

India, however, has tried to downplay the conflict by calling it a “trivial incident”. China has not yet commented on the Nakula incident.

The Indian Army said in a brief statement that “local commanders have settled the matter following protocol established in the Nakula incident.”

However, this is the first time in the last seven months that Indian forces have admitted to fresh clashes on the Chinese border.

Earlier in June last year, at least 20 Indian soldiers were killed in fierce clashes between the two countries’ armies in the Galwan Valley in Ladakh. The extent of the damage to China in that conflict is not yet known.

The military-level talks that began between the two countries in an effort to defuse border tensions after the clashes are still ongoing.
