As many as 35 Chinese troops died, including one senior officer, in a fierce clash with the Indian Army in the Galwan Valley in eastern Ladakh on June 15, according to a US News report citing its source.

China has considered the casualties among its troops as a humiliation for its armed forces and has not confirmed the numbers for fear of emboldening other adversaries, the source told the publication.

The India-China clash is said to be the biggest military confrontation in over five decades that has significantly escalated the already-volatile border standoff in the region.

According to the report, the incident took place during a meeting in the mountainous region between the two sides -- both of which had agreed to disarm -- to determine how the two militaries would safely withdraw their presences from the region.
