New Delhi : A report by NDTV quoted Army sources as confirming that China's flag unfurled in Galwan valley does not violate the demilitarized zone between the two countries in the area.

In simple words, the flag has been placed in undisputed Chinese-held areas, and not near the bend of the river where Indian and Chinese soldiers had clashed in June 2020.

A Chinese media handle had tweeted: "China's national flag rise over Galwan Valley on the New Year Day of 2022."

The tweet claims that this flag is special since it once flew over Tiananmen Square in Beijing.



In July last year, India and China agreed to mutually withdraw 2 km from the clash site. This followed talks between National Security Adviser Ajit Doval and China's Foreign Minister Wang Yi.
