The United States Senate on Thursday introduced a bipartisan resolution criticising China’s military aggression to change the Line of Actual Control with India, PTI reported. New Delhi and Beijing were locked in a standoff along the LAC on June 15 in the Galwan Valley, in which 20 Indian soldiers were killed.
The resolution by Senators John Cornyn and Mark Warner, both co-chairs of the Senate India Caucus, also sought the two neighbouring countries to find a diplomatic solution to restore the status quo at the LAC.
“This resolution condemns PRC’s actions to change the Line of Actual Control, especially in the midst of diplomatic negotiations between the two countries; and encourages the two nations to find a diplomatic resolution that restores the April 2020 status quo at the LAC,” Senator Warner was quoted as saying by Hindustan Times.
The resolution condemned China for its “its refusal to de-demarcate that Line in accordance with past bilateral agreements with India.”
