India says the troops had a "little duel" with China within the Sikkim border space
NEW DELHI (Reuters) – Indian and Chinese troops were engaged in a duel last week in a controversial section of their shared border in the eastern Himalayas, the Indian army said on Monday.
The two sides have been in a tense stalemate in the western Himalayas since April and have since strengthened the armed forces along the border.
"It is made clear that there was a minor clash in the Nakula area of North Sikkim on January 20, 2021, which was resolved by local commanders in accordance with established protocols," said a statement from the Indian Army.
