Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi visits his country's armed forces in the disputed Ladakh region.

BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:00 P.M.) – Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited the disputed Ladakh region of the northern Himalayas on Friday, after weeks of tension between his nation and China over the backdrop of a border clash.

Officials said Modi flew to the area after weeks of Indian and Chinese forces clashing over the disputed border area, which led to heightened tensions between the two countries.

Pictures released by ANI showed Moody having met the Indian forces at a base in the Nimo District of Ladakh, as he was accompanied by Army Chief of Staff General Bipin Rawat, and army chief General Mukund Naravane.

India and China shared the blame for the clash in the Galwan Valley on June 15, when 20 Indian soldiers were killed and at least 76 others were injured.

While China has not disclosed the number of losses inflicted on its troops, the Indian Prime Minister is under pressure to respond to what India considers Chinese incursions.

The two nuclear-armed neighbors have massed forces along a border most of which is still in dispute, and military and diplomatic talks are continuing in attempts to defuse the sitaution.
