India-China clash: They have come to blows, we'll help them, says Donald Trump
Washington/IBNS: United States President Donald Trump has said that his administration is in talks with both India and China to help them resolve the ongoing border skirmishes in the Eastern Ladakh.
"It's a very tough situation. We're talking to India. We're talking to China. They've got a big problem there," Trump told reporters at the White House on Saturday before leaving for his election rally in Oklahoma.
On being asked to comment on the situation between India and China, Trump said: "They've come to blows, and we'll see what happens. We'll try and help them out."
More than four decades after the last fatality occurred during a conflict at the India-China border, at least 20 Indian personnel were killed in the conflict with the Chinese military at the Galwan Valley on June 15, which is close to Aksai Chin, an area that is controlled by China but claimed by both the countries.
Earlier the Trump Administration has backed India against the Chinese incursions along the Line of Actual Control in Eastern Ladakh.
