Disclosing the number of casualties would be a sure sign that China has an intention to continue the border confrontation.
Several questions deserve clearer factual answers from China and India if the crisis is to be understood properly. What portion of the territory administered by India on its side of the LAC has China occupied in the Galwan Valley, and on the shores of Lake Pangong Tso? How many men have the two armies deployed along the LAC in its Western part, along Ladakh and Aksai Chin? How many Chinese intrusions have taken place since the beginning of the tensions? How many times has the Indian army crossed the LAC?
