Chinese Foreign Ministry rejects India’s claim of releasing 10 soldiers after an agreement
The deep-rooted Indo-China clash that came into existence because Beijing controls an enormous proportion of India’s territory.
On Friday, news circulated on Indian news channels, which stated that following an agreement between the two countries, China had released ten previously detained Indian soldiers among the several Indian soldiers who were held by China on Thursday. According to Indian media, the release incident took place around 5 PM, and it was reported that the soldiers were unharmed.
However, the news seems a little fishy as earlier the Indian Army stated that none of its soldiers were in Chinese custody. Later on, the invalidity of the claim was confirmed when the Chinese Foreign Ministry rejected it based on the argument that China never detained any Indian soldiers.
The deep-rooted Indo-China clash that came into existence because Beijing controls an enormous proportion of India’s territory and does not intend to return control, took another road when the news of the ten soldiers went viral.
China has not only killed 20-40, injured approx 100 Indian soldiers, had even kept 10 Indian soldiers including senior officers as hostages. What has Modi made to Indian Army! Is this an Army of an aspiring super power? https://t.co/mUadghy31V

On Thursday evening, three days after clashes in the Galwan Valley of Ladakh (during which 20 Indian soldiers died), the Chinese released 10 Indian Army personnel, including a Lieutenant Colonel and three Majors, from their custody.

As soon as Beijing denied all claims, another disgrace of the Indian Army was unveiled. To India’s utter dismay, their land was already being controlled by China, and they were unable to do anything about it. Only now, India had further destroyed its reputation by this false claim raised against China.
