After the meeting, Singh tweeted, "The loss of soldiers in Galwan is deeply disturbing and painful. Our soldiers displayed exemplary courage and valour in the line of duty and sacrificed their lives in the highest traditions of the Indian Army."

"The Nation will never forget their bravery and sacrifice. My heart goes out to the families of the fallen soldiers. The nation stands shoulder to shoulder with them in this difficult hour. We are proud of the bravery and courage of India’s bravehearts," he added.

De-escalating the tension along the LAC appeared to be the top agenda to ensure that no further trouble is fomented. 
 

Late Tuesday night, Modi held a meeting with Rajnath Singh, Home Minister Amit Shah, External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar and Finance Minister Nirmala Sithataman to take stock of the situation after the Army announced that 20 Indian soldiers were killed in the "violent stand-off" in Galwan valley. Army chief MM Naravane was also present.
