The Hindu newspaper wrote that a pact on the release was reached at major general-level talks between the Indian Army and China’s People’s Liberation Army.

Indian External Affairs Minister S. Jaishankar said the Indian troops were outnumbered and attacked by the Chinese side. “All troops on border duty always carry arms, especially when leaving the post. Those at Galwan on June 15 did so. Long-standing practice (as per 1996 & 2005 agreements) not to use firearms during faceoffs,” Jaishankar said on Twitter, in response to a tweet from Congress leader Rahul Gandhi.
