Tensions are rising between the ruthless Communist State and the world’s largest Democracy.
20 Indian soldiers have been killed by China in a border clash in the disputed region of Kashmir.
It’s the worst border clash in nearly half a century, and comes amid China’s increasing aggression towards nearly every country.
Earlier, India had said there were 3 deaths, but many critically injured soldiers have since succumbed to their injuries.
Here’s what India said in a statement:
“A violent face-off happened as a result of an attempt by the Chinese side to unilaterally change the status quo there”.
According to some reports, the Chinese soldiers literally beat the Indian troops to death.
So far, China has not claimed any casualties on their side, however it is believed there were casualties on China’s side as well.
China has been increasingly threatening countries around the world, and seem determined to turn the entire world against them.
As a result, India has been seeking closer ties with the United States. A strong US-India alliance could be a game changer, bringing the world’s most powerful democracy and the world’s largest democracy together.
