“No formal plans on that beyond what I already said in expressing our absolute condolences to the Indian soldiers that died as a result of today’s confrontation.

The US on Thursday expressed its condolences to India on the loss of lives of its soldiers and said – “We extend our deepest condolences to the people of India for the lives lost as a result of the recent confrontation with China,” US secretary of state Mike Pompeo said in a tweet, hours after his meeting with top Chinese diplomat Yang Jiechi. “We will remember the soldiers’ families, loved ones, and communities as they grieve,” said Pompeo.
