Indian Diplomat To Skip Beijing Winter Olympics In Row Over Galwan Soldier
New Delhi: An Indian diplomat has decided to boycott the opening and closing ceremony of Winter Olympics in Beijing, where China has chosen as torchbearer a soldier who fought in Ladakh’s Galwan Valley against Indian troops in 2020. China’s move to distinguish a soldier from Galwan, where 20 Indian soldiers died, at the Games is considered provocative by many. The foreign ministry today called it “regrettable” while announcing the diplomat’s decision.
