    By Devjyot Ghoshal and Huizhong Wu NEW DELHI/BEIJING (Reuters) - Indian and Chinese military commanders have agreed to disengage forces facing off over a disputed stretch of border where a clash last week left 20 Indian soldiers dead, an Indian government source in New Delhi said on Tuesday. Speaking in Beijing, Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian said the two sides had agreed to take measures to ease tensions. "There was a mutual consensus to disengage," the Indian source said, commenting on the outcome of a meeting between commanders on border on Monday that lasted almost 11 hours. China's Zhao described recent media reports of 40 Chinese casualties in the clash as "fake news". China has not disclosed how many casualties its side suffered in the brutal fighting on June 15, when soldiers beat each other with rocks and wooden sticks embedded with nails, while observing a long-held protocol to avoid using firearms. Troops from the nuclear-armed neighbours have been facing-off in several areas in the Ladakh region in the western Himalayas since last month, and the clash in the...

    Indian commanders today pushed for Chinese withdrawal at a tense summit over the disputed Himalayan border after the first deadly clash in 45 years.   The commanders met in Moldo, on the Chinese side of the Line of Actual Control, a line drawn through the barren mountains after India's crushing defeat in the 1962 Sino-Indian War. Delhi said 20 of its soldiers were killed by Chinese troops wielding nail-studded clubs during a barbaric three-hour battle in the Galwan Valley last Monday. The dispute led to calls for boycotts and investment proposals from Chinese companies worth £530 million have been put on hold.

    China and India have ordered more troops to their borders following a clash earlier this week that killed 20 Indian troops and wounded scores more, according to a report Friday. “There is credible evidence to suggest that both China and India have significantly reinforced their positions on their respective sides of the de facto border,” the International Institute for Strategic Studies said, citing satellite imagery, the South China Morning Post reported. The satellite photographs were taken at the disputed Galwan River valley taken by Earth-imaging company Planet Labs on earlier in the week. They showed that structures close to the Line of Actual Control, which could have been the Chinese tents that triggered the deadliest clash on the west Himalayan border since 1967, had been dismantled. Several positions on the Indian side of the LAC had also been removed, the website reported. But there also appeared to have be more activity by the two armies in the region in Kashmir. A temporary position with up to 40 vehicles appeared to have been set up on the Indian side, while a...
