The US expressed condolences to soldiers who died in the conflict with China, and the tensions were high

NEW DELHI  The US on Friday expressed its condolences over the deaths of 20 Indian soldiers who joined hands with Chinese soldiers during clashes between two Asian giants on the border of the conflict earlier this week. 

After two deadly conflicts between two nuclear-armed nations for more than five decades, the two governments have agreed, but they seek to reduce conflicts in the Western Himalayas.

Since the skirmish, military officials have been negotiating, but there is no sign of success.

A source in the Government of India told the ground situation, "The situation remains the same as there is no breakdown but there is no precedent."

The next day after the funeral of some soldiers, the mood of the people in India called for revenge and the expulsion of Chinese-made goods.

Shocked that his country lost the lives of its soldiers, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been facing foreign policy challenges since he came to power in 2014.

Modi, who is actively seeking greater economic engagement with China, will also have to review the status of US relations with Beijing in a time of decline.

"We extend our deepest condolences to the Indian people as a result of the recent conflict with China," US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in a message posted on Twitter.

"We remember their families, loved ones and communities when the soldiers suffered."

As a non-aligned country, India has always tried to balance the influence of superpowers while pursuing an independent course in foreign policy matters.

Over the past two decades, New Delhi has established close political and defense ties with Washington and the United States has become one of India's top arms suppliers.

In the face of growing tensions with Beijing, calls are on the rise from India's top diplomats for a pre-emptive relationship to help the US and its allies counter economic and military might, such as Japan and China.

Former Foreign Secretary Nirupama Rao wrote in The Hindu newspaper, "As an important strategic partner to India, it is an opportunity to align our interests more strongly and unequally with the US, Japan, Australia and Asia."

India alleges that Chinese soldiers acted in a predetermined manner in the Galvan valley and attacked Indian soldiers with iron sticks and nail boats. India's military has claimed that millions of Indian soldiers were injured in the clashes on Monday evening and that the Chinese army was also killed.

Between China and India, three places, including Galvan, have been infiltrating each other since early May, with India's Chinese forces infiltrating their territory along a well-defined line of de facto control. .

China has denied allegations of infiltration and promised Indian troops to enter Chinese territory.

However, the satellite image suggests that China is going to have a lot of trouble avoiding the Himalayas during the heavy rains.

The images, shot Tuesday, have been rising for more than a week after a hand-to-hand battle with soldiers in the cold Galvan Valley of the Himalayas.
