The Indian army said on Monday that soldiers from India and China clashed last week along the two countries’ disputed Himalayan border.
It was the first reported standoff between troops from the two Asian giants since deadly clashes in 2020 strained their already tense relations.
Troops from both sides have adhered to long-standing protocols to avoid the use of firearms along the frontier, known as the Line of Actual Control (LAC).
The LAC separates Chinese and Indian-held territories from Ladakh in the west to Arunachal Pradesh.
