S Jaishankar says ‘Indian soldiers were carrying arms during Galwan faceoff’

Foreign Minister S Jaishankar on Thursday said that the troops of the Indian Army were carrying arms during the face-off at the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in Galwan Valley on Monday night. Jaishankar was responding to a tweet by Congress leader Rahul Gandhi questioning as to why were the Indian soldiers unarmed. Jaishankar said that it is a long-standing practice, as per 1996 and 2005 agreements, to not use firearms during faceoffs.
