The de-escalation process occurs at the Galwan river valley in LAC between India and China after 45 years on Monday night. According to reports, firing does not take place, it could be a violent face-off.
Both the nations, Indian and China face casualties.
The stand-off at Ladakh scuffle martyred one Army officer and two soldiers from the Indian side. Whereas, according to reports, five Chinese soldiers died in this fight too and eleven soldiers injured. This was the result of violent hand-to-hand scuffles.
What Causes this Rivalry After 45 Years?
It could be a result of anti-Chinese feelings due to pandemic Coronavirus growing globally. As people of many nations including India rejected to use Chinese products that could affect the China Economy and it’s brand drastically. Many manufacturing industries are focussing to shift their units to another country, and India is one of their best. So, this act might be condemned to show their anger against India.
Officials Trying to Defuse the Statement
Defence Minister of India Rajnath Singh Statement reviews this act with external affairs minister, CDS, and chiefs of all three services. Later, he added with the prime minister of India Narendra Modi.
Also, the senior military of both nations is meeting to defuse the situation.

One of the 20+ soldiers Killed in Action at Galwan Valley in violent clash with China is Ganesh Ram Kunjam from Kanker in Chattisgarh. Joined Indian Army in 2011, was posted in Ladakh just about a month ago. Family in Kanker informed about his demise officially. Rest In Peace. pic.twitter.com/BbIm1FRWOj

Unless I missed it, Prime Minister Modi has not said one word publicly about the 20 Indian soldiers that lost their lives in the Galwan Valley. No statement, no address to the nation, and not even a tweet about it. This is monumentally surprising.
