US Senate introducing resolution to suppress Chinese aggression against India

A bipartisan gathering of two powerful American senators on Thursday presented a resolution in the Senate sentencing China’s hostility towards India to change business as usual at the Line of Actual Control between the two Asian mammoths.

The June 15 conflict between China and India, resulting in the deaths of approximately 20 Indian soldiers, should set off alarm bells regarding the People’s Republic of China’s provocative actions in disputed territory,” the Senator said.

The June 15 conflict between China and India, resulting in the deaths of approximately 20 Indian soldiers, should set off alarm bells regarding the People’s Republic of China’s provocative actions in disputed territory,” the Senator said.

The resolution by Senator John Cornyn, who is the Republican Senate Majority Whip, and Senator Mark Warner, who is ranking individual from the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, follows cases of Chinese military forces annoying Indian patrols just as expanded troop deployments and infrastructure development in challenged zones. Cornyn and Warner are Co-Seats of the Senate India Caucus.

As a co-founder of the Senate India Caucus, I know firsthand the importance of a strong relationship between the United States and India,” Cornyn said. “I commend India’s commitment to standing up to China and maintaining a free and open Indo-Pacific. It is more important than ever that we support our Indian partners as they defend against Chinese aggression.”

Indian and Chinese troops have been secured a harsh standoff in a few territories along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in eastern Ladakh since May 5. The circumstance decayed after the June 15 Galwan Valley conflicts in which 20 Indian Army personnel were executed and an unconfirmed number of Chinese soldiers kicked the bucket.
