Several rounds of dialogue took place between senior military officers on both sides in order to defuse tensions. On the evening of June 15, 2020, Chinese activities were recorded across the Galwan Valley Bridge, and the Indian military decided to confront them with Chinese troops to ask they will respect the LAC and follow the position as previously agreed during the talks.
