However, it maintained that it would not disclose further details to “maintain operational security.”
KDRTV understands that India and China had engaged in an ugly confrontation in the history of two sides in June 2015, which left 20 Indian soldiers dead while number Chinese casualties unconfirmed
Since the worst dispute in 2015, the tension between the two sides has been simmering and in late July, India revealed that it would add an additional of 35, 000 troops along the border to thwart Chinese attempt to provoke them.
