China clashes with India after a violent skirmish in the Himalayas



On Wednesday, China expressed concern over escalating tensions with India in the wake of the first deadly conflict between the two countries and threatened to curtail Beijing's ambitions for the region.



A day later, China accused the "arrogance and carelessness" of participating in Monday's incident in the mountainous Galen Valley region, in which soldiers were killed on both sides, and because of American influence, officials in China received a very abusive tone. In a phone call Wednesday, the Chinese Foreign Minister asked the Chinese Foreign Minister to investigate the incident, prosecute those involved, and stop its military presence in the area.

"China and India are in close communication on resolving cross-border issues through diplomatic and military means," another Chinese state media post quoted the Foreign Ministry as saying. A ministry spokesman told reporters Wednesday morning that China no longer wants to see skirmishes.

China and India have pledged to resolve the deadlock through diplomacy and establish peace in the contested border areas, Zhao Lianjian state media said. He said the two countries have far more common interests than the two largest developing countries in the world.

There is a lot of risk to China, which, like the US, sees India as an important coalition for economic impact in the region.

The US intelligence department believes that India has now raised the question of how confident Beijing is in its international affairs and what the Indian government has already arranged for closer cooperation with the US. Will, a known source of evaluation. US officials have repeatedly warned their Indian counterparts to uphold their commitments to China, and they continue to support the Indian army in the face of an ongoing stalemate.

India on Tuesday confirmed that at least 35 Chinese soldiers have been killed - including one senior official - in a violent confrontation in the northern and southwestern China constituency. China confirmed these dangers on Wednesday but did not specify how many of its own troops there were.

Both sides were unarmed at a late-night meeting on Monday on how the two militants withdraw their patronage from the area. The meeting turned violent, with one-on-one attacks using pointed potions, swords, stones, and other improvised weapons. Falling off the steep terrain caused some accidents.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who was silent on Tuesday's clash, said in a short speech early Wednesday morning that the death of soldiers is "in vain" and that China will continue to provoke India by giving a "provocative response".

India has experienced the loss of troops, especially on the border with Pakistan. But for China, the event represents a rare embarrassment - and its fear may lead to other rivals within its borders.

It also comes at a time when the Trump administration's desire to strengthen relations with India as part of its economic rivalry with China is changing.
