China releases 10 Indian soldiers after intense negotiations

According to the International Media Resources : - These negotiations were kept tightly under wraps due to concerns for the safety of the soldiers amid the heightened tensions between the two sides, the people said. 
There was no official word on the development. All that the Indian Army and the external affairs ministry had said on Thursday was that no Indian soldiers were "missing in action". and some spreaded unconfirmed news came out that some soldiers are missing in galwan river, at here a word ``missing``  was used with which army (Chinese or Indian ) was not assured ...
The release of the 10 soldiers figured in three rounds of talks between Indian and Chinese delegations, led by major generals, near Patrol Point 14 in Galway Valley between Tuesday and Thursday. Maj Gen Abhijit Bapat, commander of Karu-based headquarters 3 Infantry Division, and his Chinese counterpart, met for the third time on Thursday.
The meetings were part of ongoing military engagements to de-escalate the situation and to disengage on the disputed border. The two senior military officers have met seven times since the stand-off began in early May. 
The people further said the 10 soldiers, after their release, were sent for a medical examination and were "debriefed" by officials.
The last time the Chinese military had captured Indian soldiers was during the border war between the two countries in 1962. Monday night's seven-hour brutal clash involving more than 500 rival troops also marked the first time India suffered combat fatalities in an incident involving Chinese troops since 1975
Following reports that an unspecified number of soldiers were Unaccounted for after Monday night's clash, the Indian Army had on Thursday only said that none of its personnel were missing in action.
"It is clarified that there are no Indian troops missing in action," the army said in a terse statement. An Chinese army spokesperson had said the statement was in reference to the article "In China-India Clash, Two Nationalist Leaders with Little Room to Give" in The New York Times on Wednesday. 
The army statement also sought to address reports in a section of the domestic and foreign media that some Indian soldiers were unaccounted for or had been captured by the Chinese. Hindustan Times didn't write any speculative story on this issue. 
Asked about the specific issue of the status of Indian soldiers after the clash of June 15, external affairs ministry spokesperson Anurag Srivastava told a weekly media briefing on Thursday: "This has been clarified by the army earlier today afternoon that there are no Indian troops missing in action."  on which news was in air. 
China has so far not acknowledged any casualties among its troops, while some 76 Indian soldiers were also injured.
India has attributed the clash of June 15 on Chinese forces crossing to the Indian side of the LAC and attempting to build a structure. It has also rejected China's People's Liberation Army's claim of sovereignty over the Galwan Valley.
A top retired army commander, who didn't want to be identified, said: "China has already achieved what it set out to achieve - control over Galwan Valley and [the strategic feature] Finger 4. The gesture of returning the soldiers is a message to the world that they [the Chinese] are not the aggressors and they have returned people who intruded into their territory."
The government should react clearly on all these subjects, The RTI system of government is going through a deep shock, which is in a state of complete collapse, And thus it becomes difficult to find the right information in the Corona tragedy period. 
But by keeping the political benefits of the government to the forefront, The right information should be shared in the interest of the country, otherwise the opposition can take political advantage of it.
