Indian soldiers killed in border conflict 'violence' with China

SRINAGAR, India – At least three Indian soldiers, including a senior military officer, were killed in a confrontation with Chinese troops along their disputed border in the Himalayas where thousands of troops on both sides have been confronting for more than a month, Indian troops said Tuesday.

This incident is the first confrontation between two Asian giants in which the army has been killed since 1975.

The Indian army said in a statement that “violence” took place in the Galwan valley in Ladakh region on Monday night “with casualties on both sides.”

“The loss of life on the Indian side includes an officer and two soldiers,” the statement said. “Senior military officials from both sides are currently meeting at the venue to defuse the situation.”

China, for its part, accused Indian troops along the Himalayan border of carrying out “provocative attacks” against its troops, leading to “serious physical conflicts” between the two sides.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian gave no details about casualties on the Chinese side, but said on Tuesday that China had strongly protested the incident while still committed to maintaining “peace and calm” along the disputed and highly militarized border.

“But what is surprising is that on June 15, Indian forces seriously violated the consensus of both parties, crossed the border illegally twice and carried out provocative attacks on Chinese personnel, which resulted in serious physical conflict between the two border forces,” Zhao said.

Thousands of troops from both countries, supported by armored and artillery trucks, have faced only a few hundred meters apart for more than a month in the Ladakh region near Tibet. Army officers and diplomats have held a series of meetings to try to end the deadlock, without a breakthrough.

Indian officials said Chinese troops crossed the border in Ladakh in early May at three different points, set up tents and guard posts and ignored verbal warnings to leave. It sparked quarrels, stone throws and fights, mostly played back on television news and social media channels.

China tried to play down the confrontation by saying the two sides were communicating through their frontline military units and their respective embassies to solve the problem.

Although fighting is not new along their long-disputed border, the standoff in the Galwan Valley in Ladakh, where India is building a strategic road connecting the region with an airstrip near China, has increased in recent weeks.

India and China fought at the 1962 border which also extended to Ladakh. Both countries have been trying to resolve their border disputes since the early 1990s without success.

Since then, troops from both sides have often faced along their long border which runs from Ladakh in the north to the northeastern Sikkim state.

The Indian military statement said, “violent raids” occurred “during the de-escalation process in the Galwan Valley.”

Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.

Maestro Filipe Cunha, Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Braga, has been invited to conduct the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, as announced today.

According to a statement sent by O MINHO, “he will be the first Portuguese conductor to conduct this orchestra in its entire history.”

In addition to this orchestra, the maestro will also work with the Lyceo Mozarteum de la Habana Symphony Orchestra.

The concerts will take place on 4 and 12 March 2023 at the National Theater of Cuba in Havana.

In the words of the maestro, quoted in the statement, “these will be very beautiful concerts with difficult but very complex pieces” and therefore he feels “very motivated”.

From the very beginning, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 will be performed by an Italian pianist (Luigi Borzillo), whom the maestro wants to bring to Portugal later this year. In the same concert, Mendelshon’s First Symphony will be performed.

Then, at the second concert, in the company of the Mexican clarinetist Angel Zedillo, he will perform the Louis Sfora Concerto No. 2. In this concert, the maestro also conducts Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony.

“This is an international recognition of my work. An invitation that I accept with humility and great responsibility. I was surprised to learn that I would be the first Portuguese member of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. This is a very great honor,” the maestro said in a statement.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts. These will be very special concerts because, in addition to performing pieces that I love, especially Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, I will be directing two wonderful soloists who are also my friends. It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
